What is a Chicago Greystone

Extremely popular in Chicago, there are still around 30,000 Greystones standing in the city today. While somewhat similar to brownstones, Chicago Greystones do have some differences beginning with their unique hue.

Greystones first started going up in Chicago in the late 1800s, with construction continuing through the 1930s. Much like a brownstone, a Greystone takes its name from the color of stone used on its façade, which in the case of Greystones, was sourced from a quarry in neighboring Indiana. While brownstones were commonly built as single-family homes, Greystones in Chicago were usually built to house between two to four families, including the wealthy and the working class. 

Common Characteristics of Chicago Greystones

A Greystone can be semi-detached or fully detached and was commonly built starting around the end of the 19th century. This is a time when Romanesque-style architecture was popular, so that’s why many Greystones from this time period have that type of appearance. Many of these original Greystones have arches and cornices. Later, some of the Greystones in Chicago were built in a Neoclassical design. Some of these have bay windows and smoother limestone blocks with columns. Usually, the back and sides of a Greystone were constructed in a less expensive brick. Most Greystones were either two- or three-stories high, which could commonly accommodate two or three flats, or sometimes even more. Most contained no more than five private residences. 

No matter how many residences are inside, all Greystones feature a street-facing limestone façade. Sometimes you’ll see black fencing around the front of the property. Inside, many Greystones have their original hardwood flooring. The Greystones were constructed to be replicated, with usually just small variations between them. You’ll likely find wide steps leading to a parlor in the front of the home, and a kitchen located at the back of the home. Some have been remodeled and refreshed to make the floorplans feel more modern over the years. Because of the similar exterior, though, it may be hard to see from the outside if there are multiple flats located within the property. 

Where You’ll Find Greystones in Chicago 

In the late 1800s, Greystones first began going up in neighborhoods like North Lawndale, Woodlawn, and Lakeview. In fact, there are quite a few Greystones still standing in North Lawndale today. The Historic Chicago Greystone Initiative works to help preserve this type of architecture in the city.
