Welcome to Lincoln Square

Lincoln Square on Chicago’s north side is home to about 44,000 residents. Encompassing the smaller neighborhoods of Ravenswood Manor, Ravenswood Gardens, Bowmanville, and Budlong Woods, Lincoln Square prides itself on its community spirit, abundant parks, and family-friendly environment. Both new and older homes as well as condos and multi-unit properties comprise the neighborhood, with easy access to other parts of Chicago via the Brown Line.


Chicagoans have been calling Lincoln Square by that name since 1925, but its history extends far beyond then. Originally an outpost of forest and prairie, Lincoln Square provided Chicago developers in the 1800’s with a sought-after alternative to the dense and crowded city. It was after the Chicago Fire of 1871, when many citizens could not afford to rebuild their homes downtown according to new city codes, that a wave of settlers began moving to Lincoln Square’s more affordable countryside. In more recent years, Lincoln Square has seen an influx of German immigrants whose strong heritage can be felt in many of the neighborhood’s businesses.


Lincoln Square’s German and Old World heritage remains present through its rich culture of modern-day restaurants, boutiques, local coffee shops, twice-weekly Farmers’ Markets, and of course, the community’s Merz Apothecary, which has been running since 1875. This upscale, quiet, and safe neighborhood is currently home to Chicago families and professionals, as it boasts many of the city’s elementary and high schools. A modern-day rise in shops catering to Thai and Middle Eastern cultures provides a healthy balance to the culture of the area.
