Lincoln Square is the definition of a cozy, family-friendly Chicago neighborhood. A charming mixture between new and old, it celebrates its German heritage while looking to the future for inspiration. Residents love the neighborhood’s welcoming spirit, abundant parkland, and creative businesses. With a walk down the area’s bustling corridors, one will find hip restaurants and bars, cozy coffee houses, and an array of independent shops. With the nearby CTA Brown Line, the Metra North Line, and the Kennedy Expressway, the Loop and beyond is an easy commute!
Originally forest and prairie, the area was first settled in the 1840s by German immigrants. Still mostly farmland, notable businesses also included a pickle factory and a commercial greenhouse. The neighborhood’s population spiked after the Chicago Fire of 1871, when many citizens could not afford to build homes downtown according to new city codes. Much like today, the area presented an attractive alternative to the city’s densely built and crowded areas. Named Lincoln Square in honor of Abraham Lincoln in 1925, a prominent statue of the president was erected in 1956.
