At the beginning of the 20th century, Logan Boulevard became a fashionable address for many of Chicago’s upper-class families. Anna E. Ryan commissioned Chicago architect John Ahlschlager to build her mansion at 2819 West Logan Boulevard in 1907. Ahlschlager was also commissioned to build an extravagant home for John E. Rustman at 3024 West Logan Boulevard in 1907-08. Most of the homes along Logan Boulevard, and the other boulevards in Logan Square, were never converted into rooming houses or apartments, and therefore, have retained most of their original woodwork, stained glass windows, and traditional charm.
