Attracted by landscaped parkways and the requirement that all houses be in the "bungalow mode," buyers in this development built residences--largely between 1907 and 1925--that show the influence of the Prairie and Craftsman styles and also the popularity of the American Four-Square. The subdivision originally was marketed under the name of "Irving Park Villa."
