2111 East 3rd Street | Architect: William A. Hunt | Built: 1910 | Extant

The Forsyth house is another fine work of William Hunt’s, an American Four Square form with Craftsman and Prairie style architectural details. The house was constructed by contractor George Lounsberry, who in 1915 built Morgan Park’s Lake View Store, considered the first indoor mall in the U.S. It contained dozens of businesses, and an estimated 10,000 people toured the mall on its opening day. Edward Forsyth was secretary-treasurer of the W. S. Moore Company.
