Originally established in about 1670 as a French trading post, it was on the trail between Green Bay, WI and old Chicago. The fort evolved from a crude stopping place into a formidable fort. And now the original vintage late 19th Century architecture blends with 21st Century convenience with this northern neighborhood - the fort has been converted to condos, town homes and single family residences. Amazing. Quaint. When I looked for more information about Fort Sheridan, research indicated that part of the renovations include 11-20 foot ceilings and 8 foot windows in some of the units.
Driving through the neighborhoods, you can see how officer residences and barracks are now well appointed dwellings. How romantic! And sweet:).
