Hyde Park, Chicago Real Estate

    ABOUT HYDE PARK

    In 1893 Hyde Park hosted the Chicago’s World Fair (known as the Columbian Exposition) which, among other things, introduced the United States to electricity and the Ferris wheel. The event was so grand that it required more than 600 acres of space, the construction of 200 buildings and welcomed close to 30 million people. More than 120 years later, the area is still a profound hinge point of historical and social importance in Chicago.

    Bookended by two of the city’s most significant cultural institutions, The University of Chicago to the west and The Museum of Science and Industry to the east, Hyde Park is an incredibly popular South Side neighborhood for locals and visitors. The Museum of Science and Industry is the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere and boasts more than 2,000 exhibits. The University of Chicago is a Victorian Gothic-clad, Nobel Prize factory with one of the country’s most scenic campuses to boot. Not far from the fabled school, you will find the home of President Barack Obama. The neighborhood’s cultural contributions don’t end there, either.

    Robie House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is widely considered one of the most iconic masterpieces in American design. The DuSable Museum of African American History is the largest institution of its kind in the United States. And the Hyde Park Art Center has been a powerful force in the city’s art scene for more than seven decades.
