Shaw Place

Update: I went back and revisited Shaw Place in November of 2021.

Supposedly Henry Shaw designed Shaw Place to remind himself of his youth growing up in England.

A private street, is is very difficult to see into this exclusive enclave just south of I-44.

The architecture seems to me to be Italianate, but there is a certain eclecticism to it.

Read more about it here, at the National Register of Historic Places.

Apparently they were originally built as rental properties by Shaw to generate income for his garden.
