Old Irving Park History

Development of Old Irving Park began in 1869 when Charles T. Race, a local businessman together with a group of developers purchased two parcels of farmland amounting to two hundred acres.  Initially, they planned to farm the land but the astute businessman convinced his partners to instead develop the area as an exclusive suburban community.  As in any settlement, transportation is a vital aspect to attracting settlers, the group worked out a deal with the Chicago & North Western Railroad where the developers will build a railway station, on their land as long as the railroad company will agree to offer a stop at the new station to ferry passengers going downtown and beyond.  This new suburb immediately attracted many wealthy Chicago families, who were looking for more land to erect their huge homes.  It also was attractive to the middle class, who looked for respite from the stress of city life. When the Great Chicago Fire wreaked havoc in 1871, many families moved to the area resulting to the establishment of several mansions built along Irving Park Boulevard.
