Stretching south from 47th Street to the Midway Plaisance and east from Washington Park to the lakeÕs shore, the historic neighborhood of Hyde ParkÑKenwood covers nearly two square miles of ChicagoÕs south side. At one time a wealthy township outside of the city, this neighborhood has been home to ChicagoÕs 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 the grand mansions, stately row houses, and elegant apartments that these notables called home, Hyde ParkÑKenwood is still one of ChicagoÕs most prominent locales.
