American Foursquare Houses in Oak Park Real Estate
Influenced by the Prairie Style, builders constructed American Foursquare houses in Oak Park in the twentieth century. These houses have roomy interiors and share many features with the Prairie style homes. They can be found in all the Oak Park neighborhoods. Often they have been dressed up by borrowing elements from Queen Anne, Mission, or Craftsman architectural features. In Oak Park, “foursquares” come in brick, stone, stucco, and wood siding. Many wood-sided foursquares display the original narrow horizontals and trim that the Prairie architects used and homeowners have painted the wood in arts and crafts palette colors.
