West Cabanne Place Historic District
Laid out as a semi-rural retreat in the late 1800s, West Cabanne Place eventually came to feature some of the finest Shingle Style homes in the Midwest. As the neighborhood around it filled up in ensuing decades, the area and especially a house by the noted Boston architect H.H. Richardson; set the pace for style and architectural integrity. Although some of the Shingle Style homes have been lost to fire or demolition, others still remain, allowing West Cabanne Place to retain its distinction after so many years. The homes are privately owned, but walks through the area during the day are allowed.
