Cermak Road Architectural and Historic Resources Survey

Berwyn, Illinois

Lakota conducted an intensive survey of architectural and historic building resources located along the Cermak Road commercial corridor in Berwyn. The survey included in-depth archival research, field documentation, and the evaluation of 155 properties (considered on both the individual and collective district levels) for potential eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places. A context statement was also prepared as a framework for understanding the architectural and historical significance of Cermak Road’s building resources. Cermak Road’s architecture varies from the Classical and Tudor Revival buildings of the 1920s to the sleek, glass wall Modern structures of the 1950s.
