1. Charles N. Loucks House Marker
Inscription. Designed as a "model home," this Queen Anne-style house was built for Irving Park land developer Charles N. Loucks. It is a fine example of "pattern book architecture,", building designs sold through the mail--a popular method used to keep pace with housing demands in the rapidly-growing railroad suburbs of the time. The house is noteworthy for its colored beveled-glass windows, verandah with beaded spindle-work, applied metal ornament and its distinctive turret.
