Menomonee Street

Interesting
This astonishing street evokes the essence of historical Old Town. Nine cottages on its south side, nos 325-345, are good examples of the small wooden cottages built here in former times; they could be erected in no time thanks to the technique of balloon frame construction. This Chicago building innovation was partly accountable for the rapid growth - and combustibility - of the city. The tiny house at no 348 is one of the few remaining examples of one of 3 000 fire-relief huts donated by the Chicago Fire Relief and Aid Society for families left homeless by the fire.
