Sun, Sep 14, 2014 12 noon - 4 pm

Peterson Woods, a tiny wedge of Chicago’s West Ridge neighborhood, may be one of the city’s best kept secrets. The Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society's 28h Annual House Tour features this far southwest corner of the neighborhood. The western boundary is Legion Park, which borders the north shore channel between Bryn Mawr and Peterson Avenues and provides a recreational green belt.

Peterson Woods, a tiny wedge of Chicago’s West Ridge neighborhood, may be one of the city’s best kept secrets. The Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society's 28h Annual House Tour features this far southwest corner of the neighborhood. The western boundary is Legion Park, which borders the north shore channel between Bryn Mawr and Peterson Avenues and provides a recreational green belt. The custom built homes, many accented with turrets, Tudor-style wood beams, tile roofs, leaded windows, and wrought iron fencing, were built between 1925 and 1935 for members of the Chicago elite. Some have had only three owners over those years.

The tour will take place from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 14. Highlights of the tour are visits to a fabulous ‘castle’ at Hollywood and Virginia and a beautifully upgraded mansion on Sacramento. Historian Arlene Swartzman will talk about the history of Legion Park in the park itself.

Check-in on the day of the tour will be 5736 N. Sacramento. Light refreshments will be served. The pre-registration fee is $20 for members, $25 for nonmembers; same day fees are $25 for members, $30 for nonmembers. To register, go to rpwrhs.org/program/house-walk. You can also mail your checks to RPWRHS, 1447 W. Morse Avenue, Chicago IL 60626.

    This will be my sons first year at Jamieson and so far I like the classrooms, the teachers and the environment. Hope to see more once my son has been at the school for a while and also when they have finished the renovations.

gun shots or illegal fireworks at 2:00am???

Anyone else in Peterson Park hear the loud noises that could either be gun shots or fireworks? Whatever they were, I want to do something about it since my dog and I jumped out of bed and he barked his head off. Call 311 or 911??

  • robin in WRP Tired and Cranky

    Call 911!

  • jldoolittle Resident of Rogers Park for 9 years

    For the past few days, very loud fireworks going on - I wonder if it is the celebration of the end of Ramadon (pardon the spelling if incorrect). It seems each year that I have been living in WRP, fireworks are more frequent, longer, and louder. Painful for some dogs' ears. Aren't fireworks illegal? Will police respond?

War zone?

Oh my goodness, where those gunshots?? I'm on Peterson and Lincoln and, they sounded wicked close. There were many. I lost count.

  • Sheryl 60659 Peterson Park resident

    I thought they were fireworks! I was about to post something about being awaken by them and what to do about reporting them!

  • If you are talking about the noises/pops from late Sunday/early Monday those were fireworks from around Devon and Western - people there were celebrating the end of Ramadan. I heard it and couldn't figure out why someone would be blowing off fireworks at 2:30 in the morning, but I saw footage on the NBC news Monday morning.

graffiti found on garage doors and fences

Took a stroll to Panera Bread while walking down Glenlake Ave and to my disgust, I saw graffiti gang symbols on neighbors' fences and garage doors in the alley between Christiana and Jersey. I took pics and reported the vandalism online thru the City of Chicago services website: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/streets/provdrs/graffiti_blasters.html

  • Agreed, signed, posted to FB. As a recent NEIU graduate, I'm well aware they have tons of land not being used.
    In addition to this- there is also all of the baseball diamonds, tennis court areas they can use as they discontinued the I sports program in the mid nineties.
