Famous for being the birthplace of writers Ernest Hemingway and Edgar Rice Burroughs (“Tarzan” novels), Oak Park, established in 1848, grew up as a village in the Victorian period and its graceful, tree-lined streets have Victorian houses galore. These “painted ladies” feature spacious wrap-around porches, arches, turrets, gingerbread trim, and external ornate details. Interior space, first designed for large families, now continues to provide ample living areas, with multiple bedrooms, high ceilings, impressive moldings, fireplaces, and frequently third floors with additional space for family use. Local pride in Oak Park’s Victorians, stimulated by historic districts and village awards, has kept many of these vintage properties in top notch condition for modern living. Interest in the Victorians continues to intrigue new home owners.
