Hegewisch Architecture Welcome
Students have selected one representative
block in each of the communities of Chicago's Southeast Side. The
block was chosen to illustrate various styles of residential architecture
common in the particular community. The13100 block of Brandon Avenue
was chosen for the Hegewisch community. Hegewisch is the "youngest"
of the Southeast Chicago communities. It dates itself from 1883.
Information for the "Block Chart" was derived from city building permits
and is somewhat incomplete. The CNT chart was developed from information
from the Center for Neighborhood Technology web site. Images were
taken with a digital camera by the students who worked on this project.
