Hyde Park, Chicago Community Area #41 sits 7 miles south of the Loop. It is a unique community not just in the south side, or Chicago, but in the world. Hyde Park’s fortunes were made when Chicago secured the 1893 Columbian Exposition World’s Fair and settled that it would occur in Hyde Park, namely what is now Jackson Park, and the Midway Plaisance, flowing into Washington Park. This was Chicago’s moment in the sun following its rebuilding after the Great Fire. It is home to the University of Chicago, and the grand Gothic campus dotted with several notable moderns. The community around the campus is equally impressive. Luminaries like Frank Lloyd Wright, Frederick Olmsted, Lorado Taft, Dwight Perkins, George and William Keck, and Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe are but some of the giants with handsome contributions to the areas rich architectural palette. Hyde Park is full of locally owned businesses, and community organizations and caring stewards of the history of the neighborhood.
The Tour of Hyde Park has been postponed 2 weeks to its new date of Saturday June 24, 2017 at 11:00 AM.
