CD-Rom republication of the 1886 Morgan Park Suburban Homes Community. About 40 pages of great little starter homes, mostly smaller 1 and 2 bedroom homes for the beginning family. This is a VERY unique little catalog, actually advertising a pre-planned community!! Pages list all the benifits of relocating to this new town, education, sewer systems, railroad station, college, and about 30 pages of neat little starter homes.
Morgan Park is located south of Beverly (properly Beverly Hills), with an invisible borderline drawn at 107th street. Additionally, Morgan Park is home to significant institutions and venues, including the Beverly Arts Center, the historic 111th Street train station on the Rock Island District, the prestigious Morgan Park Academy, and a substantial number of upscale homes.
Morgan Park is home to Morgan Park High School and also one of the Chicago Public School's oldest school buildings(Esmond Elementary School) being built in the 1890's, the early 1900's, and the 70's. Morgan Park/ Beverly was once a suburb that was later annexed by the city of Chicago. Instead of having a "city feel", the community has more of the appearance of a quiet suburb, like Beverly, hence the nickname "Village within the City".
