Residents of the “Manor” know just how truly unique this neighborhood is, and since 1914, the Ravenswood Manor Improvement Association has been working to maintain this uniqueness.
Our beautiful Chicago neighborhood is located on the northwest side, along the North Branch of the Chicago River. Ravenswood Manor is bounded by Lawrence Avenue to the north, Montrose Avenue to the south, the Chicago River to the east, and Sacramento Avenue to the west.
In 1914, the neighborhood organized the RMIA to maintain the “park-like” condition in the Manor. The RMIA, a historic institution in the Manor, annually hosts the Easter egg hunt, garage sale, garden walk, bike parade, and winter social. This unique neighborhood is more than a collection of distinctive houses. It is a community of people, which relies upon the neighborly spirit of its residents and their support of their association.
The RMIA is a non-profit association under the laws of Illinois. The purpose of the RMIA is “to promote the welfare of the community in respect to the maintenance and improvement of the physical appearance of the private and public property; the compliance with the laws as applicable to private and public property; the maintenance of facilities with respect to the safety, health and welfare of its residents.”
The RMIA is responsible for having the neighborhood listed on the Nation Register as an Historic District on September 5, 2008.
