WEST RIDGE — The Far North Side neighborhood of West Ridge is rich with ties to early Chicago history, including an abundance of what's become known as one of the city's defining styles of residential architecture: the bungalow.

From noon-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society is sponsoring a self-guided walking tour of six homes in the Rogers Park Manor Historic Bungalow District, just south of Indian Boundary Park at 2500 W. Lunt Ave.

The homes, which represent "outstanding examples of classic Chicago Bungalow architecture," have each been honored by the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association and the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, according to the historical society.

The walk kicks off at the park's cultural center, itself a Driehaus award-winner after a restoration overhaul in 2012.

Homeowners will share personal stories about their homes and their efforts to preserve the houses' histories.

Those interested can sign up for the $30 tour here ($25 for members) and are encouraged to pre-register, the historical society said.
