Built in 1836, the Clarke House, 1827 S. Indiana Avenue, is Chicago’s oldest home. Throughout its history, the residence survived fires and was moved twice. During the second move, the home had to be lifted above the “L” because it wouldn’t fit under the tracks, but it was the middle of winter, the machinery froze and the home was stuck in the air for two weeks until it got warmer!
