466 Laurel Avenue
Built between 1870 and 1890, #466 is a 3,012-square-foot, 2-story brick single-family residential structure, which best exemplifies the Italianate style. 466 Laurel Avenue is located within Highland Park’s 1999 Central East survey area, and it attributed the house
a “C – Contributing historical status”. This is the middle of three historical designations (between NC – Not Contributing, and S – Significant), which indicates that the house would contribute to an official Historical District if one were created within the neighborhood. However, it also indicates that the house was not found to have sufficient historical significance to warrant its own landmark designation.
The exterior appearance of the original house was modified in 1937 as part of remodeling activities. An addition on the south side of the house impacted some of the classic design characteristics as it was of a different style than the original architecture. The City of Highland Park Building Division records indicate that a detached garage was also constructed in 1974.
