This week, these four properties with open houses this weekend all have varying amounts of historic detail.

Built by the housing reformer and philanthropist as model homes for the working poor in 1876-77, the distinctive 186-unit, nine-building red-brick complex centers on common courtyards and has wrought iron ornamented balconies connecting the apartments.
