Chicago Landmark - The Hitchcock House

The Hitchcock House is located in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. One of the oldest houses in Austin, it was built in 1871 for Charles Hitchcock, an executive of a railroad parts manufacturing company. With tall windows, a low hipped roof, and large porch the Hitchcock House reflects the Italianate style, which was inspired by the architecture of Italian country villas. It was designated a Chicago Landmark on July 7, 1992.
