Schneider House

553 North Marion
Oak Park

2010 Historic Preservation

Award This landmark house was built in 1899 for the Schneider family, Oak Park merchants. The Queen Ann residence exterior was restored and two small additions containing a mud room and a dining porch built. The additions were not only functional but created more privacy in the garden while establishing a more human scale. The interior was completely rebuilt restoring or replacing the period details, setting the stage for the family’s taste for modern art and furnishings. The property received an 8 year Historic Property Tax Freeze in 2010.
