Frederick C. Robie House, ca. 1910

Susan O'Connor Davis

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust in partnership with the Standard Club invites you to a lunch and lecture with author Susan O’ Connor Davis as she discusses Chicago’s Hyde Park-Kenwood neighborhood.

Stretching south from 47th Street to the Midway Plaisance and east from Washington Park to the lake’s shore, the historic neighborhood of Hyde Park-Kenwood covers nearly two square miles of Chicago’s south side. At one time a wealthy township outside of the city, this neighborhood has been home to Chicago’s elite for more than one hundred and fifty years, counting among its residents, presidents and politicians, scholars, athletes and fiery religious leaders. Known today for its grand mansions and stately row houses, Hyde Park-Kenwood is still one of Chicago’s most prominent locales. In her new book, Chicago’s Historic Hyde Park, Susan O’Connor Davis offers a biography of this distinguished neighborhood.
