Born in a rich history, Berwyn has the most significant collection of Chicago-style bungalows in the nation today and recently inspired Bungalow Appreciation Week within the State of Illinois. The Berwyn bungalow has also been honored as “Chicagoland’s Greatest Treasure” by American Bungalow magazine, and This Old House magazine named Berwyn “Best Neighborhood for Bungalows” nationally. Be sure to save the date for the Berwyn Historical Society’s annual Historic Berwyn Bungalow Tour in September for a taste of what we have to offer. Berwyn has also made it into the National Register’s list of Historic Places for the seventh time for its Central Berwyn Bungalow Historic District.

Residents of Berwyn enjoy some of the finest and most affordable housing available in the Chicagoland area. Predominantly single-family homes, the residential neighborhoods present a pleasant blend of old and new, situated along quiet tree-lined streets with meticulously maintained lawns and gardens. In addition, there are handsome multi-unit apartment complexes constructed in the early 1900s. A wonderful place to live, work and raise a family, generation after generation continues to call Berwyn their home.
