Old Irving Park, a neighborhood within the Irving Park community, symbolizes the history of Chicago. Nestled between Montrose and Addison, and Pulaski Road to the Milwaukee Road Railroad, Old Irving Park is sure to charm. The local Independence Park hosts an annual Fourth of July celebration, complete with a parade, concert, athletics and fireworks.
From the historic homes to the local adult Irving Park White Sox baseball team, Old Irving Park has made its mark. Large single family homes in late Victorian, Foursquare and Revival Queen Anne, Victorian, and Mediterranean styles share a community with farmhouses and Craftsman and bungalow styled homes. Historic home restoration is an art in Old Irving Park.
Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
