Walk Edgewater: Bryn Mawr Historic District
Edgewater Historical Society
Bryn Mawr Historic District is the center of Edgewater and Edgewater’s main street. Learn how J.L. Cochran planned to develop Edgewater as a suburb until urbanization happened. The street has a unique mix of what are called hybrid buildings, including luxury apartments and stores. Many of the buildings are named Chicago landmarks. The walk begins in front of the Edgewater Beach Apartments, and extends west to Broadway and back again.
There is a limit of 15 in each tour. Our tour guides, who will have microphones, will lead you through the tour, and share with you our researched brochure. Everyone must wear a face mask and keep social distancing. The fee for each tour is $15, which supports the Edgewater Historical Society Museum. Register here.
