If Lewis Ginter’s ambitious development plans had worked out, the Sherwood Park subdivision would have been the first to be built on his sprawling North Side property. Ginter and his business partners formed the Sherwood Land Co. in 1891, and they consulted with landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted about its layout. But the Panic of 1893 froze residential construction nationwide, and work in Sherwood Park didn’t begin until the late 1920s, decades after Ginter’s death. Construction in the subdivision continued into the 1960s, and popular midcentury styles such as Cape Cod and Ranch dominate its aesthetic.
