One of the first federally funded public housing projects, built between 1935 and 1937, and now being demolished. Originally, the site housed the Irish-Catholic Sacred Heart Convent. It was sold in the early 1900s to the Jewish immigrant community who built a Hebrew Cultural Center. The accompanying photograph from the late 1930s shows children playing on sculptures created by WPA artists. (Chicago History Museum, ICHi-23379)
