Chicago Magazine recently called out four River Forest homes that are on the market and that, for the most part, showcase the Prairie School architectural style these villages are known for.

In "Get Prairie Schooled by These River Forest Homes," Chicago Mag recognized the Arthur C. and Margaret A. Zoller House at 754 William St., a 1915 home that rests on a block that represents the first, and possibly only remaining, Prairie School planned development in the state. The magazine also featured the former River Forest Women's Club at 526 Ashland Ave., calling it "one of the most famous properties in the area." The article noted that, while the homes at 206 Franklin Ave. and 801 Clinton Pl. deviated slightly from the Prairie School aesthetic, the colors and architectural details still spoke to the neighboring homes' design.

We can't argue that the village houses some gorgeous historic properties.
