Melrose Park Illinois ( and Bellwood ) - Chicago suburbs

Melrose Park

Just west of the Desplaines river, mos of these photos are from 1st and 5th ave S of Lake street.

Founded in 1871 it is currently gentrifying with an interesting mix .

What most people expect

Coverall sideing

United Way

But look closer

And turn the corner

Now a municipal building

This must have been a funeral home before being remade into a church

Round church - Holy Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church

Services en espanol


Some housing in need of upkeep.

Alot of nice bungalows and apartments.

Broadview West of Melrose Park
Bet use of a walkway - Rock of Ages Baptist Church

NOT a storfront church -

And some industrial feel B L Downey
