4224 North Hermitage Avenue
Imaginative massing make this modest house seem quite elegant. Note also idiosyncratic Palladian-like window on second floor. Screen door and art nouveau decorations of front porch are recent additions.
Many residents of early Ravenswood were connected to one another. Irving Hamlin, for example, married the daughter of Reverend W. A. Lloyd, first pastor of Ravenswood Congregational Church. Hamlin and his wife lived with the Lloyds at the southwest corner of Sunnyside and Hermitage while building this house, which cost about $2,200 in 1896.
