History

In the years before the Great Chicago Fire, William H. Spikings, using bricks he made himself, built a substantial farmhouse at what would become the corner of Lawrence Avenue and Pulaski Road. The site of the area's original farmstead eventually became a street-car crossing and an important business location. In 1974, the Chicago Park District acquired the northwest corner of the intersection for park development. Called Louis Goldberg park for a brief period in 1975, it was renamed for Spikings Farm in 1998.
