A Victorian Greystone in East Garfield Park

229 - 241 North Sacramento Boulevard, built 1894

This Victorian-style greystone consists of units that are 3 stories each with full basements. Its construction coincides with the establishment of the Sacramento station (closed and demolished in 1949) on the Lake Street elevated rail in early 1894.
