Berwyn Development Corporation Now in its 5th year, I am pleased to share our annual Community Resource Guide, a publication that provides our community and prospective residents a glimpse into what makes Berwyn Nothing Like a Suburb. We recognize that this year has been unlike any in recent memory. Despite these challenges, we know that our community is strong and resilient. As businesses begin to reopen, we hope that you will be inspired to experience some of the many assets Berwyn has to offer.

Andy Sotiropoulos BDC Board President

Within 4.4 square miles reside almost 56,000 residents, making Berwyn the densest township in Illinois. This creates an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to explore our community, which is truly Full of Character(s). With access to public transit and high walkability score (73 according to Walk Score) Berwyn is easily accessible to all.

While Berwyn is well-known for our spectacular summer events schedule, we prioritize the health and safety of our residents above all. Therefore, we made the tough decision to cancel our 2020 events season. These annual events would not be possible without the support of local businesses, and these local businesses would not exist if not for your continued support. We encourage everyone to shop local throughout the year as we eye a 2021 events season bigger and stronger than ever. Speaking of our business community, Berwyn has demonstrated that we are as smart as we are tough. Our businesses continue to grow in remarkable and innovative ways to address this new, yet temporary, reality. It is important—now more than ever—to recognize these champions and celebrate all they do for our community. Most importantly, we encourage everyone to continue supporting their friends and neighbors. I hope you are as inspired by this community as I am, and as excited for the many opportunities that lie ahead. Respectfully, Andy Sotiropoulos President, BDC Board of Directors

Since 2012, the City of Berwyn has also had an Active Transportation Plan, a map of bike-friendly routes, and additional signage, all aimed at helping Berwyn be even more friendly to bicyclists and pedestrians. This in combination with the seven Pace Bus routes and three Metra stops that run through our city highlights Berwyn’s unique role as a truly hybrid community that boasts suburban charm with a city living feel. Did you know Berwyn has the lowest per capita emissions from both vehicles and homes in the Chicago region? Berwyn’s walkability and transportation choices are not only convenient but help further reduce our carbon footprint. Our efforts are being noticed. A chapter is dedicated to Berwyn and our low carbon emissions in The Five-Ton Life: Carbon, America, and the Culture That May Save Us, part of the University of Nebraska Press’s Our Sustainable Future series published by Susan Subak. Far from your average suburb, our walkability and transportation alternatives are part of what makes our Handcrafted Community unique. Get out there—on foot or by public transport—and see what our fair city has to offer.

A Message from

Mayor Robert J. Lovero, City of Berwyn

B

erwyn is a community that prides itself on taking good care of our neighbors. Civic duty and mutual aid have been core tenets and guiding principles since the first days of our city. Over these recent months, this sentiment has been magnified as our nation, state, and community faced the stark realities of a global pandemic that brought us all to stop. From our economy to the education system to our daily operations at the city level, we transformed every aspect of our lives. As citizens, our birthday parties, worship services, weekly market trips, soccer games, work schedules—the rituals of daily life and much-anticipated milestones—were upended. As a community, many of you stepped in to support our food pantries, which witnessed a dramatic increase in demand. You checked on neighbors and left care packages for delivery people. Your acts of kindness don’t go unnoticed. Our first responders and medical community have continued to heroically answer the call of keeping Berwyn safe while risking their own lives—for that, we are endlessly grateful. I am so proud of how our education leaders, teachers, and staff worked swiftly to develop a system to continue to support our youngest residents. From online learning to meal distributions and coordinated drive-by parades, I am inspired by the care and attention provided to our families. For the hundreds of students who graduated this year, I send you heartfelt congratulations. This achievement will be memorable for you in many ways, although we all honor that it’s not at all the way you envisioned it at the beginning of the school year. Without a doubt, our local economy is impacted to a level that will take many months to recover. As we rang in 2020 and planned for a full calendar of events, the full scope of many of our brick-and-mortar businesses being forced to close for weeks if not months to ensure the public safety was nearly unimaginable. The myriad ways revenue is generated, from shopping to dining out to visiting cultural spaces and public events, went quiet. Our resilient business owners were forced to reinvent their daily operations to continue to serve the community. I’m astounded by the innovation of grab-and-go food, FaceTiming to shop, delivery options, and more. It’s a testament to your entrepreneurial and community spirit. Many of our business owners are our neighbors. During these times, where they could not operate, we were touched to see how they stepped in to donate their time and meals to first responders, food pantries, and the medical community. As Berwynites, we mourn with those of you who have lost loved ones, agonize over lost jobs or businesses, wish health to those who have been sick, and send comfort to those feeling the fear and anxiety that come with the unknown. These are times that test us, as individuals, as families, as business owners, employees, neighbors, and citizens. I believe today, as I have always believed, that we as a community are resilient, generous, creative, courageous, hard working, and full of potential. As we look into what the future holds for Berwyn, know that as your elected leader, I will continue to keep your safety, and our collective spirit, top of mind. We have a long road ahead, but I assure you that we will get through uncertain times in the very ways we’ve built Berwyn since our founding days. We’ll come together, rely on one another, lend our best talents, and bring our best ideas forward, together. Respectfully, Mayor Robert J. Lovero

This campaign reaches more than 1 million people annually and showcases that Berwyn truly is “nothing like a suburb.”

Local Public Art Berwyn is home to many public indoor and outdoor art projects funded by several art initiatives and grants. It all began with “The Picnic,” a mural painted in 1942 inside the Berwyn Post Office as part of FDR’s New Deal Public Works program. In the nearly 60 years since, Berwyn has continued to incorporate art across the city. The Depot District is home to a series of public murals made possible by the Berwyn Public Art Initiative, both on buildings and freestanding from Harlem Ave to Ridgeland Ave. Not to mention our public school buildings featuring murals for everyone to enjoy. From public art to your private residence, you can take a piece of local art home when you visit the JLH Craft & Vintage Market at the Friendly Coffee Lounge on the third Saturday of each month.

THE MOTHER ROAD IN BERWYN

S

ince its creation, Historic Route 66 has served as a lifeline through the American West, taking travelers from Chicago to Los Angeles. Traversing Route 66 also became one of America’s most famous and treasured pastimes over the course of its rich history. Small towns and communities sprang up along the route, only to decline as new routes emerged. Our own stretch of Route 66 was also up and coming in the 1920s. From then till now, it has been home to some of the best Berwyn has to offer. From Harlem to Lombard, Berwyn’s Ogden Avenue is home to truly one-of-a-kind businesses and dining experiences.

Born in 1926, Route 66 was one of many new numbered highways crisscrossing the country that became drivers’ favorite road west for generations to come and emblematic of an America on the move.

When it comes to the elusive toy store in today’s online world, children and adults alike in Berwyn and surrounding communities have reason to celebrate. Berwyn’s Toys and Trains has been right around the corner, keeping our imaginations alive since 1992. In a building that was once a Chevrolet dealership, Berwyn’s favorite toy store stays with the theme of Route 66. Beyond plenty of new toys, you’ll also find many items that will bring you back to the glory days of yesteryear’s Route 66, from vintage car models to classic train sets. The interior is just how you’d hope a toy store to be, complete with an elaborate train set that includes a replica of the store itself. If you are looking for another kind of unique experience, Cigars & Stripes BBQ Lounge is it. Owner Ronnie Lottz puts it perfectly when he says, “If you love Halloween and hot rods, this place is for you.” Whether it be Open Mic Comedy Nights or horror movie showings, there is always some form of entertainment to accompany the great beer and even better food. Did we mention they have a cigar shop, too? 24

Head a little further west, and you’ll find Paisans Pizzeria & Bar, another favorite stop along the Mother Road. In 2020, Paisans celebrates 35 years of serving the Berwyn community. Enjoy their award-winning pizza, burgers, salads, and wings in a family-friendly atmosphere, and marvel at the amazing decor that gives off major Route 66 vibes. You’ll even spot custom motorcycles and a dragster on display!

Photo from Berwyn by Douglas Deuchler, Images of America series

The avenue we know and love today was formerly known as Old Plank Road before being renamed in 1872 in honor of Chicago’s first mayor, William Butler Ogden. Before Route 66, you could only travel so far by horse and buggy. After being redesigned for the automobile in the ‘20s, Ogden Avenue evolved over the years to include an eclectic mix of businesses that all pay homage to American automobile culture.

Along this stretch you’ll find plenty of car-centric businesses from dealerships to automotive repair. Berwyn Kia, Buddy Bear Car Wash, Crash Champions, Ibarra Motors, Midas Auto Service Experts, Mike & Sons Auto Service, Ogden Top & Trim, Ron’s R & B Auto Body & Kustoms, Weimer Machine LLC & Automotive Repair Specialists, and Zeigler Pre-Owned of Chicago all call Ogden Avenue home. As a part of the automotive industry, these businesses keep the Route 66 spirit alive. One of Berwyn’s most popular events also commemorates and celebrates what Route 66 was all about—the cars. Berwyn was and is a great Route 66 town with a thriving, dynamic, and fast-growing community at its heart. In the summer, the community gets a taste of nostalgic American car culture at the annual Berwyn Route 66 Car Show. Visitors enjoy more than 600 classic and custom vehicles on display, local bites, and fun for the whole family. The community’s safety and health take priority. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 WeatherTech® Berwyn Route 66 Car Show Sponsored by Paisans Pizzeria & Bar has been canceled and will be brought back bigger and better than ever in 2021! The community is encouraged to continue celebrating Berwyn’s automotive heritage by supporting businesses along the Mother Road. To learn more about Route 66, stop by the four Historic Route 66 Scenic Byway Wayside Exhibits & Information Kiosks along Berwyn’s stretch of Ogden Ave. The Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway preserves the history and keeps tradition alive through kiosks installed along the Mother Road in 17 Illinois towns.

Berwyn’s Business Districts:

CERMAK ROAD The streets you walk and drive every day have shops and restaurants you love. They may also have centuries of stories worth hearing. Take Cermak Road, long heralded as Berwyn’s Main Street. Today, Berwyn’s Cermak Road corridor boasts locally owned small businesses, national favorites, a rich history, and a bright future.

Celebrating a Great Czech Heritage Cermak Road honors Chicago’s mayor from 1931-1933. On February 15, 1933, an assassin took aim at then-President Franklin Roosevelt during a rally in downtown Miami. Killed instead was Chicago’s mayor, Anton J. Cermak, who was in Florida visiting the President while he vacationed before his inauguration.

Czech Plaza Restaurant 7016 W Ceramak Rd Photo from Berwyn by Douglas Deuchler, Images of America series

Cermak, a Czech immigrant, helped create a diverse Democratic party. In his honor, the city renamed 22nd street as it passed through Czech-American neighborhoods in Pilsen and Lawndale on its way west to Cicero and Berwyn, both home to large Czech populations at the time. Stop by the Chicagoland Czech-American Community Center and see how it keeps the active Czech community connected, supports small businesses, and organizes events.

A Diverse Community Flourishes While its roots might be in Bohemia, Berwyn was long popular with ItalianAmericans, Greeks, Lithuanians, Poles, Yugoslavians, and Ukrainians, too. Today Berwyn is home to a growing Latinx, African-American, and Asian-American population, and everyone’s taste buds benefit. Enjoy Zacatacos, El Nuevo Vallarta Sports Bar & Grill, or Las Islas for ceviche or famed La Lupita Restaurant, named WGN-TV’s “Chicago’s Best Mexican Restaurant.” Their tacos and pozole are top-notch, and they offer tortillas made in-house. Whether you crave a savory elote, a sweet paleta, or what’s called by customers, “the absolute best ice cream,” head to La Michoacana Classic, where patrons report generous portions, spot-on flavors, and affordable prices. Las Vegas Vietnamese Restaurant’s phõ and fresh spring rolls—as well as the service—get rave reviews from loyal diners. Pierre’s Bakery/Coffee Shop 6310 W Cermak Rd Las Vegas Vietnamese Restaurant 6725 W Cermak Rd

National Chains Come to Cermak Road In recent years, Berwyn’s award-winning corporation and business incentives have enticed popular national retailers and emerging chains to stake a claim in the community. McDonald’s, Jimmy John’s, longtime Chicago darling Home Run Inn Pizzeria, and LongHorn Steakhouse offer full-service dining, and all have Cermak Road addresses in town. Berwyn Gateway Plaza conveniently includes Starbucks, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza. Cermak Plaza was an early example of a modern shopping center, opening in 1956 as suburbs expanded west. Today, it’s one of the near west suburbs’ premier shopping hubs. Anchored by Tony’s Fresh Market, a family-owned supermarket with specialty imports, a much-anticipated addition to the plaza, it also includes Ross Dress for Less, Avenue, Gap Outlet, Shoe Carnival, Discovery Clothing, K & G Fashion, and Marshalls. Newer shops like Pet Supplies Plus and Old Navy add even more reasons to stop in.

One for the Record Books No mention of Cermak Road—or green technology—would be complete without the 13,500 square-foot World’s Largest Laundromat. Not only has this father-and-sons business been honored by the Guinness Book of World Records, but it is also famous for its award-winning eco-initiatives. A 36-panel solar thermal system is one of the largest green installations in the state. 6240-46 W Cermak Rd

Small Businesses Make It Big Photo from Berwyn by Douglas Deuchler, Images of America series

Vesecky’s Bakery 6634 W Cermak Rd

The rich Czech influence, along with many savings and loan businesses, earned Cermak Road the nickname “The Bohemian Wall Street.” Today, spots like the beloved Vesecky’s Bakery, where savvy locals have popped in for houska and rye for more than a century, carry on that tradition. Czech Plaza Restaurant is famed for its breaded pork tenderloin and stuffed fruit dumplings. A welcome addition is Flight 22 Wine Bar, where knowledgeable staff pour wine and mix cocktails. Other independent businesses have been Cermak Road staples for generations. Old Fashioned Candies, family-owned since 1969, is famous for offering “Chicago’s Best Sweet Treats,” tempting holiday creations, and chocolate-covered strawberries.

Old Fashioned Candies 6210 W Cermak Rd

Scelebrations Fashion 6727 W Cermak Rd

Beyond food and beverage, Cermak Road is a small business shopper’s dream.

For more than a decade, Craig’s Shoes has fitted men, women, and children. Customers appreciate the knowledgeable and friendly staff, topnamed brands, and the frequent shopper rewards available.

Berwyn’s Business Districts:

R O O S E V E LT Berwyn’s Broadway Just over one hundred years ago, Roosevelt Road was a newly renamed 12th Street, dedicated in May 1919 in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt. Berwyn of the 20s was the fastest-growing suburb in Chicagoland. A large movie palace, The Ritz, opened in 1926 on Roosevelt as a cinematic sign of the times and Berwyn’s growth. While the Ritz is gone, Roosevelt Road maintains its reputation as Berwyn’s premier entertainment hub. Acts head here to play live music venues that all fall within just a few walkable blocks of one another. Each offers something unique, and together, they make what locals call The Veltway, a place locals and visitors alike flock. The true spirit of Berwyn is in full display at these venues, as each space champions one another to make this a known destination for live music—and it’s working.

FitzGerald’s Nightclub & Sidebar is TripAdvisor’s #1 place to visit in Berwyn, and for good reason. This legendary music venue—once a Bohemian hunting lodge of the 20s turned 50s nightclub—has been in its current incarnation since the 80s, with a successful transfer of ownership from the FitzGerald family this year. Known for its relaxed vibe and rich musical variety including zydeco, country, swing, folk, and bluegrass, patrons appreciate room to dance and plenty of table seating, with much easier parking than downtown venues. The equally beloved Sidebar connected to FitzGerald’s provides another small music venue known for its Young Artist Open Mics with cozy seating and great cocktails. The Friendly Tap, a very appropriately named watering hole that opened in 1937, hosts live music as well. In recent years, it has evolved and expanded into a multi-pronged offering of music, school, coffee, and bar, The Friendly Tap, Friendly Coffee Lounge, and Friendly Music School of Folk Music all-day, family-friendly community gathering places that create the Friendly Music Community. Beyond evening live music and cold drinks, folks hang out on Saturday mornings, work there during the day, or bring kids to a music class or program. The Friendly Tap also hosts live band karaoke and stand up comedy. Four local music professionals came together in 2013 to open Wire, a much-anticipated newcomer to the Berwyn music scene. Beyond performances, Wire is a center for music innovation and education, offering recording studios and instructional classes.

More than Music Chicago may have its beloved brownie smell. In Berwyn, it’s the scent of bread. For over fifty years, the Turano Baking Company has provided authentically European breads to markets and restaurants. With its national headquarters on Roosevelt Road, you get to enjoy that delightful scent. And, you can pop into Mamma Susi’s Bakeshop for a fresh-baked treat and a free cup of coffee when you spend $5.

OGDEN AVENUE ROAD TRIP WORTHY As Berwyn and other suburbs began booming in the 1920s, a new numbered highway system was sprouting across America. Route 66 was one such road, and—in the century since—it’s become an icon of progress and connection. In Berwyn, Ogden Avenue is a vibrant reminder of times past and a present-day nod to all our town has to offer. Streetscape improvements incorporate a 1950s vibe, and history lessons are available along the way. Stop and read the byway wayside exhibits to explore a stretch of the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway and the start of “fast food” restaurants, the automobile-based economy, and our uniquely American car culture. Michael Anthony’s Pizzeria & Bar 6434 W Ogden Ave

Shop Along Ogden While cars and good food are reason enough to cruise Ogden Avenue, there are plenty of unique shops along the way worth a visit.

Berwyn: Where Art & Entertainment Live Supporting the arts and local businesses go hand-in-hand in Berwyn. And, with plenty of parking, bike lanes, sidewalks, and public transport options, it’s an easy decision to dine in one of Berwyn’s bustling commercial districts, catch a show in another, and wrap up your evening with a nightcap at another. For musicians, artists, and creatives, living in Berwyn means access to all our community does to support the arts, great housing stock, and access to the city.

I want to enjoy public art. Whether you’re planning to post it on Instagram or not, there’s something special about public art. Berwyn is in the midst of a public art boom, and it’s beautiful. Along the train tracks, you can see the efforts of the Berwyn Public Art Initiative (BPAI) to bring murals and art installations to Berwyn. Dozens of art works make for a great walking tour of our Depot District. The BPAI has more projects, like pop up art projects and spaces, in the works. Other murals to check out include a fun sombrero mural raising awareness of the annual Corrida del Mariachi 5K on the south side of the North Berwyn Park District’s cultural arts center. At Heritage Middle School, you can see the “Gatekeepers” mural by young artists, local non-profit Youth Crossroads, Inc., and muralist Sam Murillo. As you make your way north on Oak Park Avenue, enjoy the Youth Crossroads underpass beautification project. Young Berwynites came together with community leaders to add a splash of color along Oak Park Ave between 29th and 27th Street. Once in North Berwyn, take a gander at the beautiful murals on display at each of the elementary schools from North Berwyn School District 98. The individual pieces collectively depict Berwyn’s rich diversity. Curious about the fire hydrants painted between Wenonah and East along Roosevelt Road? They’re the results of The Outta Space’s work with teens from Youth Crossroads and resident adult artists from Berwyn Art & Music called “Paint the Plugs.”

I want to shop for art and support local makers. Berwyn attracts creatives of all kinds. Our resident makers and artists provide a seemingly endless catalog of options to make your home more beautiful and functional. Delight the young person in your life with a charmingly handcrafted Hope Houses WorkShop dollhouse. They offer more than just dollhouses, with tree houses and shops too, as well as other wooden toys and books. Their buy one-give one program means your gift keeps on giving. Set a reminder for the third Saturday of the month between February and December. You’ll want to remember to head to the JLH Craft & Vintage Market at the Friendly Coffee Lounge. Organized by local artist Jessy Laubis, this much-anticipated event offers jewelry, upcycled art, one-of-a-kind pieces including ceramics, screen-printed tees, handbags, natural beauty and bath products, vintage houseware, and more. For those seeking fine art filled with emotion and inspired by the desire to create connections, look no further than the local artist behind Antonia Ruppert Fine Art. Custom paintings and other work, including inspirational cards, are available. Berwyn Betty’s Bath and Body has, we think, a fantastic name and the best bath bombs, scrubs, and soap to back it up. Want to feel even better about Berwyn Betty’s? This missiondriven business employs people with disabilities... and they also host great parties. If you want to be part of the art yourself, look into Joel Gonzalez of WeOurStory’s visual storytelling photography that captures the human spirit on camera. Get a sneak peek on his Berwyn-centric Instagram page (@storiesofberwyn). Print and graphic designer and comic book writer Raf Nieves, known as Unca Raffy, is just the person to ask about creating a drawing of your favorite Berwyn building. He creates posters, prints, and cards of nearby neighborhoods, too, as well as other gorgeous images.

Last, but most definitely not least, the Berwyn Public Library is the spot for two newly unveiled murals. Head to the second floor to the new children’s reading area to take a look. Antonia Ruppert Antonia Ruppert Fine Art

Premiering regional works and showcasing groundbreaking new work are part of this theater’s mission. Options for subscription series offered by this not-for-profit theater make great art even more accessible. 16th Street Theater also offers classes, camps, and a summer conservatory program, each serving a wide range of ages from kids to adults. Many of the local restaurants, bars, and lounges like Cigars & Stripes BBQ Lounge also offer storytelling, comedy, open mic, and other performances beyond live music.

I want to see live music and entertainment.

I want to learn to create.

The trifecta of live music along Roosevelt Road is a phenomenal area to start any live music journey in Berwyn.

So all this art and music has you feeling inspired? We understand. Luckily, many of the live theater and music venues also offer educational programming. Several schools of music and dance also offer a variety of classes for all ages. Introduce your baby to a multi-sensorial musical experience. Join a bluegrass jam class. Finally learn to play guitar as an adult. The not-for-profit Friendly School of Folk Music ensures that more Berwynites and folks from surrounding communities learn to appreciate music and play an evergrowing list of instruments. They also host free public events, like a monthly drum jam. Multi-dimensional venue Wire also offers courses in music theory and composition as well as performance, production, and incredibly cool specialty classes for individuals and groups. Horse-Drawn Productions is known for operating a recording studio, offering lessons on instruments, and DJing and music production. Above & Beyond Music Store also offers classes for young musicians. From affordable classes in dance to music to art to photography to sculpture to more, look to the North Berwyn Park District. This community-focused organization is beloved by Berwyn residents, and for good reason.

For decades, FitzGerald’s Nightclub & Sidebar has maintained its spot as a must-go for both its vibe and the variety of acts that come to the stage. Next door, the Sidebar provides an intimate addition for listening to music and sipping a cocktail. Since the 1930s, the Friendly Tap has welcomed musicians and stand up comedians to Berwyn. You can even participate in the live band karaoke. As the venue evolves and expands, it includes more family-friendly, all-day options.

@monstrochika

The most recent addition to Roosevelt Road is Wire. Bands and musicians love playing here because every element of performance, from lights to acoustics, has been considered. For the audience, the experience is equally remarkable. Head to the Harlem Avenue Lounge for legendary Chicago blues at a beloved neighborhood bar. Since 1980, a long list of favorite artists have taken the stage. Harlem Avenue Lounge is equally loved for its staff and atmosphere, as well as free parking.

Friendly Music Community 6733 W Roosevelt Rd

For a little bit of everything arts and entertainment, head to The Outta Space. This uniquely Berwyn venue is equal parts meeting place, gallery, performance space, classroom, and collaboration hub. A varied and exciting calendar of events and programming makes it a spot to frequent.

Other options for creative movement and expression include Peggy Rose Academy of Dance and Acrobatics. Choose from dance classes like ballet, jazz, and tap or incorporate swing, Mexican Folkloric, Latin, or acrobatics. Chance to Dance works to bring affordable dance to more kids, including hip hop, jazz, and creative movement. If arts and crafts is what moves you, Monstrochika creator Naomi Martinez is a teaching artist offering lessons on crocheting and other creations. You can also pick up some of her unique paintings, zines, and knit art.

Berwyn Betty’s Bath & Body

Whether you’re looking to spice up date night or simply add a fun stop during your regular weekend errands, we’ve got a few suggestions, only possible in Berwyn.

For many, the last course of the meal is often the best course. If you look forward to dessert the most, you won’t find a shortage of rich confections and sweet treats around this town. Since 1965, Turano Baking Company on Roosevelt Road offers heavenly bread scents and freshly baked goods including Almond Biscottini and a wide range of donuts. Buy one for yourself, or opt for a dozen so you can share the sugary goodness with your friends!

The Berwyn Township 708 Community Mental Health Board promotes quality, community-based mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse services. The board fulfills this mission by making grants, funded by local tax dollars, to local agencies that provide these services to Berwyn residents.

BACKGROUND On October 31, 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed into law the Community Mental Health Act, which drastically altered the delivery of mental health services and inspired a new era of optimism in mental healthcare. This law led to the establishment of comprehensive community mental health centers throughout the country. It helped people with mental health conditions, who were until then effectively “warehoused” in hospitals and institutions, move back into their communities. In Illinois, the Community Mental Health Act led to the creation of “708” boards, which are community mental health boards established by a community, municipality, or township for the purposes of planning and funding mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse services. Through the hard work of area residents and social service agencies, the Berwyn Township 708 Community Mental Health Fund was established in 1974 by referendum.

How to Apply: 58

BERWYN TOWNSHIP 708 COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH BOARD TODAY Initially, the Berwyn 708 Board funded four agencies. Some 46 years later, the 708 Board is a well-established grant-making body that supports organizations that reach Berwyn residents with vital mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse programming. In 2020, the 708 Board has committed to funding 13 agencies and their provision of 25 community-based programs. Over the past 10 years alone, the Berwyn 708 Board has granted $4,275,865 in funds to provided direct service to Berwyn residents.

Nonprofit organizations that provide direct services to improve the mental health of Berwyn Township residents with mental health conditions, developmental disabilities, and/ or substance use disorders may apply to the Berwyn Township 708 Community Mental Health Board.

Berwyn’s

Green Spaces

It’s been said that “parks and playgrounds are the soul of a city.” In Berwyn, you’ll find lush gardens, brightly colored playgrounds, and fields of dreams. Our parks and green spaces offer a wide variety of tranquility and joy to be enjoyed all year long.

From Proksa Park with its walking path, butterfly garden, and updated ponds and creek to the Berwyn Gardens, a beautiful passive parkway featuring game tables, a gazebo, and a play space for children. As a densely populated community, it is important to boast that Berwyn is home to many green spaces. In total, Berwyn has over 15 active green spaces spread out throughout the community. Throughout the year, these facilities and grounds are busy with activity. To ensure the safety of the community during Covid-19 all of Berwyn’s Park Districts and Recreation Department developed policies that have impacted the use of their facilities. Both Park Districts are offering exciting virtual programming through their social media or website. Please visit each site below to understand updated restrictions and learn about the programming available. Berwyn Park District berwynparks.org

B

erwyn is known as the City of Homes because it is so far from your average cookie-cutter suburb. When you think Berwyn, bungalows most likely come to mind first. Yes, Berwyn’s rich history is reflected in one of the most significant collections of Chicago-style bungalows in the nation today. But it may surprise you to learn just how much variety there is in Berwyn’s charming and affordable housing stock.

French Normandy

After World War I, the French Normandy architecture style became popular among the growing middle class in America. Inspired by French chateaus, these houses were versions built on a smaller and more affordable scale. French Normandy houses often feature arched doorways, steep roof pitches, high ridge lines, dormers, half-timbering, and a round stone tower topped by a conical roof usually serving as either the entrance or simply a design feature.

Tudor Revivals

Tudor Revival style houses are some of the more recent houses to be built in Berwyn, starting to appear in the 1940s. Tudor Revivals tend to sit on smaller lots than their Bungalow neighbors as they were built to be a more affordable option. These houses boast a very steep pitched roof and intersecting gable roofs and are always one and a half stories high. Some feature small front porches, but many have no porch at all. Berwyn’s Tudors tend to feature intricate stonework that frames different parts of the home.

66

| 2020 Community Resource Guide | WhyBerwyn.com


American Foursquares

Some of the first homes to be built in Berwyn, American Foursquares are unique in their effective use of space. Popular around the 1910s, they were chosen because of their simplicity compared to their fancier Victorian counterparts. Common features of an American Foursquare are two and a half stories, large overhanging eaves, and a large front porch with wide steps. They tended to be built on larger lots, providing residents with plenty of space to plan and plant beautifully landscaped front lawns.

Workman’s Cottages

The Workman’s Cottage home can be defined by its namesake—a cottage. Most Workman’s Cottages are typically one and a half stories with a pointed roof. Some are frame houses and others were built with brick. Workman’s Cottages are considered the predecessor to Chicagostyle Bungalows. The outsides of the cottage-style homes may appear very different, but the interiors can be very similar with almost the same floor plan.

Bungalows

Berwyn’s Bungalows were all generally built around the same time in the 1920s to 1930s. Although many Bungalows in a block were sometimes built by the same workers, each house in Berwyn is unique, with subtle differences from its neighbors by design or made by the owners over the years. The roofline, style of shingles, limestone accents, and even the style of decorative face brick combine in endless ways from house to house. The Bungalows in Berwyn are also full of ornamental details such as tiled roofs, stained glass windows, checkerboard brick patterns, and intricate limestone insets. In 2015, the Central Berwyn Bungalow Historic District made it onto the National Register’s list of Historic Places for the seventh time. The Central Berwyn Bungalow Historic District is roughly bounded by Cermak Road, Home Avenue, Ridgeland & Cuyler Avenues, and 26th Street.

National Register of Historic Places

Two unique Berwyn homes are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Silhan House and Arthur Dunham House are noted as significant for the way in which they perfectly exemplify the styles in which they were built.

THE SILHAN HOUSE In 2007, this home made it onto the National Register of Historic Places for its well­-preserved style and its many features from the Art Moderne style that make it notable on a local and national level.

Victorians

You can’t miss one of Berwyn’s Queen Anne Victorians. Featuring signature style details like beautiful wrap-around porches, turrets, towers, and ornamental details, Queen Annes give a nod to the extravagance of a by-gone era. Despite their ornateness, many of the materials required to build a Victorian home were being mass-produced at the time. They were able to be shipped easily, all thanks to the widespread train routes that were established that included stops in Berwyn.

ARTHUR J. DUNHAM HOUSE In 1982, this home was added to the National Register of Historic Places because of its clear representation of the Prairie style.

WE’RE IN THIS

TOGETHER

IT’S IN THE DETAILS Your home most likely comes with beautiful original architectural details. Sometimes these details can be left alone. Sometimes these architectural details show their age, but all you need is some imagination to spruce them up! Give that tin ceiling a fresh coat of white paint to add height or transform that dull porch into a main feature. Add some eye-catching wallpaper, a splash of paint or a colorful piece of furniture to accentuate those beautiful and unique original elements found in Berwyn homes. Luckily, many of Berwyn’s local businesses have all the tools you need to create your dream home. Check out Curio Corner or Jaci’s Resale Shop for unique pieces of furniture and home decor. Leave your treasures as they are, or start your next DIY project. Berwyn’s Ace Hardware and Sherwin Williams have tons of color options, and Jack’s Rental, Inc. has tools for any project, big or small. @margekwhite

A LITTLE EXTRA TLC Do you have a laundry list of home projects that are too time consuming or too daunting to get done?
