History

The development of Irving Park began in 1843 with a 160-acre farm. Originally named Irvington after the author Washington Irving, the neighborhood was renamed Irving Park when developers discovered there was already an Irvington in Illinois. A train station was added, putting the town on the map, and Victorian, Italianate and Queen Anne mansions were built along Irving Park Road between 1870 and 1874. In the aftermath of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, an influx of people moved into the neighborhood, building homes that were less pretentious. In recent times, many Serbian immigrants have moved into Irving Park, adding popular restaurants and cafes to the area.

Demographic

A variety of middle- and upper class homes can be found in Irving Park, ranging from historical bungalows and Victorians, to simpler single family homes. The neighborhood is dotted with family-owned business, and the sense of community is prevalent. With easy access to the city center, many professionals live in the area, while younger residents attend one of several public schools, as well as a charter and magnet school
