"The South Side: Kenwood" Hyde park Tip by sambarnett
Hyde park, Chicago: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Favorite thing: Located just north of Hyde Park, Kenwood was developed between the late 1850s as a residential suburb and was annexed by Chicago in 1889. The Kenwood Historic District is loaded with imposing mansions, many built in the latter half of the 19th century.
Noteable homes and residents have included Muhammad Ali, who lived at 4944 Woodlawn. The Isidore Heller House at 5132 Woodlawn was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1897. At 4855 Woodlawn is the Elijah Muhammad house, once home to the controversial, adulterer who founded the Nation of Islam.
