Three buildings make National Register of Historic Places
(AP) — An apartment building in Streeterville is among four Illinois buildings — three in Chicago — that have been added to the National Register of Historic Places, according to the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.
Named to the list was the 1920 Neuville apartment building, at 232 E. Walton Place in the Streeterville neighborhood, an early example of luxury apartment buildings that offered the amenities of private mansions. It features an elegant lobby and 10-room apartments.
The Polish Roman Catholic Union of America Building, 984 N. Milwaukee in Chicago, made the registry. The building still houses the organization and its Polish Museum of America. The Vesta Accumulator Company Building, constructed in 1913 at 2100 S. Indiana Ave. on Chicago's South Side, also made the list. Batteries, lights and other electric devices for cars were made there.
Also making the list is the Classic Revival-styled Sheffield Village Hall in Bureau County, built in 1910 by George Franklin Barber & Co.
