Video: Historic Fullerton Avenue row houses in Lincoln Park

Bob passes these row houses almost daily. The last McCormick Row House to sell was earlier this year at 845 W Fullerton; a dated four beds, two full and two half-baths home with 2 car parking for $950,000.

Owning a Lincoln Park row house affords a rare opportunity to live amongst and preserve history at the same time. Thousands pass and admire these particular historic row houses at the 800 block of West Fullerton Avenue each day but few can say they ever lived in them. It is impossible to pass these homes on your commute and not feel you are in a special city.

Check out this informative video by YoChicago.com taken some years ago of the McCormick Row Houses and surrounding area. Warning: You may get a junior high flashback watching this video with Joe's voice-over!

From Wikipedia:
The McCormick Row House District is a group of houses located in the Lincoln Park community area in Chicago, Illinois. It sits between the east and west parts of DePaul University's Lincoln Park Campus and is independent from the school. They were built between 1884 and 1889 and used by the McCormick Theological Seminary to gain rental income. They were designed in the Queen Anne Style by the Colton and Sons architects and joined the list of Chicago Landmarks May 4, 1971.

We love a great front door around here and these homes do not disappoint!
