Description

Lincoln Park, Community Area 7 is 3 miles north of Chicago’s Loop. It occupies what is now some of the most desirable real estate and wealthy sections of the city, but it was certainly not always this way. Stretching from North to Diversey and from the Lake to the River, Lincoln Park is the star of the north side communities, and the location of some of the cities greatest cultural icons like the Chicago History Museum, the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Zoo. For our purposes, it offers a truly exceptional pallet of architectural finds with exquisite examples of nearly every Victorian Style, exceptional green space, a free 35 acre in-city zoo, lakefront trails and beaches and a virtual paradise in the city on what used to be largely cemetery land, or didn’t exist until the landfill made it. It is a dizzying array of beautiful architecture and a built environment that grew up in the ashes and rubble of the Great Fire. Put aside your notions of what Lincoln Park is today and join us for a story of what it was, and how it came to be.
