If you’ve been to the Old Town Art Fair, you’ve probably noticed this ornately detailed Italianate home on one of the fair’s exhibit blocks. Known as the Frederick Wacker home (of Wacker Drive fame), the 4700 square foot, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath was built in 1872. Wacker served as the Chairman of the Chicago Plan commission from 1909 to 1926 and was a strong advocate for Daniel Burnham’s Plan of Chicago.
The home, in Chicago’s landmark Old Town Triangle, is one of the largest and most distinctive in the area. Take a video tour of the home with Sergio & Banks’ Tina Culver.
