A Lost Montgomery Ward Westmont

520 S. Division, Barrington.

Montgomery Ward Westmont.

520 S. Division today.

The Westmont model from Montgomery Wards is a really cute house. Unfortunately, the one in Barrington fell outside the boundaries of the historic district and was unceremoniously demolished in fall 2013.

In this Chicago area, I know of only one other Westmont that is still standing--in Elmhurst.
