Samuel Gross' Subdivisions
Date: July 17, 2010 07:16PM
So according to the Encyclopedia of Chicago, Samuel Eberly Gross had 2subdivisionsns and built some 10,000 homes in the Chicagoland area. The question is, does anybody know the names of his subdivisions? I know the more popular ones like Alta Vista Terrace, Grossdale & Hollywood (which eventually turned into Brookfield, IL) and Gross Park (on Henderson & Paulina) but that leaves some 19 more. I know some other names are Under-the-Linden (I believe Humboldt Park) and Argyle Park (Uptown) and the nameless (I think) subdivision on Monroe & 5th Avenue in the East Garfield Park area that was featured in Unexpected Chicago but I can't find any info on them. Anybody got any leads, information, pictures or answers? Thanks!
