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.
