Location / Historical Significance:
The Forest-Ivanhoe Historic District is located just south of the Roselawn-Forest Heights Historic District. This area of Hammond is comprised of six of the city's historical districts. These districts all border each other and stretch from 165th Street south all the way to just south of 173rd Street.
This relatively small residential neighborhood is one of a number that came about during the first few decades of the early twentieth century. Just as the city of Hammond began to prosper as a leading industrial and commercial center of the Calumet Region.Architectural Styles:
This area is host to many fine and elegant examples of period revival style architecture, with a large majority of them being built by one of the city's most renown architects.
Mr. L. Cosby Bernard Sr. a native of Kentucky designed many of the city's public buildings including the Hammond Civic Center, Hammond Technical-Vocational High School (now Area Career Center), Woodmar Country Club, Hansen, Rupp and Sawyer Library Branches of the Hammond Public Library.
Bernard also designed more than fifteen private residences. Many of which are located along Hohman and Forest Avenues, just south of 165th Street. The Peter F. Murphy Home at 47 - 173rd Place shows us Bernard's interpretation of the Colonial Revival style. The Edward C. Minas Sr. Home (of the department store fame) located at 7326 Forest Avenue was designed in Bernard's favorite style of architecture the Tudor Revival.
Several other fine examples of period revival styled architecture, the English Cottage and the Colonial Revival can also be found interspersed among the more elaborate, architect designed residences.South side of 172nd Place east to Hohman Avenue.
