BUNGALOW HISTORIC DISTRICTS
One District at a Time
With strong community support, we have created 13 Historic Bungalow Districts in which homeowners can receive property tax freezes for up to 12 years, and take pride in their neighborhoods. Our districts span the Chicago map, from some of the earliest Chicago bungalow developments in South Shore to the most diverse architectural collection in Rogers Park. Our most recent listing sits in the beautiful Hermosa neighborhood, and is our first majority-Hispanic District.
A National Register Bungalow Historic District is a concentration of Chicago bungalows and other contributing structures formally recognized for its historical, cultural, and architectural significance. One bungalow in a district may not be particularly significant individually, but all of them are significant as a collection. Chicago bungalows nominated for listing on the National Register will be nominated as part of a district.
In addition to the prestige, community pride, and potential increased property resale value that come with living in a National Register Historic District, homeowners are eligible for the Property Tax Assessment Freeze Program.
