Washington Square Park Neighborhood

This neighborhood contained a number of the homes of successful residents of the Old Settler generation.  All of these gracious residences except one, the Ogden Mansion, vanished in the flames.  After the fire, the Chicago Relief and Aid Society built barracks in Washington Square Park, directly across the street from the Ogdens, to house poor Chicagoans who had been burnt out.
