Welcome to Logan Square

The Logan Square neighborhood is nestled in the north central part of a larger area also called Logan Square. Logan Square, like its neighbors Belmont Gardens and Bucktown, is a rising star in Chicago Real estate, known for its bohemian atmosphere, a strong sense of community, and a resurgent interest in historic preservation. It’s also home to a robust farm-to-table food scene as well as lively music venues, restaurants, and bars that cater to an eclectic clientele. The “Square” itself is located at the intersection of Logan Boulevard and Kedzie Avenue. The three large boulevards that pass through Logan Square connect a network of parks, historic mansions, and churches known collectively as Chicago’s “Emerald Necklace.”

History

In the 1830s, the area now known as Logan Square was open prairie when a New Yorker named Martin Kimbell claimed a parcel of 160 acres and established a farming community. When the Chicago & North Western Railway laid tracks west of the Chicago River decades later, industry followed and soon the area was officially incorporated into the city. The area boomed after World War I and scores of apartment buildings were constructed. In 1963, the Logan Square Neighborhood Association was formed by a group of residents who wished to preserve local historic homes and beautify the area. Artists and young professionals alike began restoring some of Logan Square’s turn-of-the-century bungalows and row houses, and the area became a National Register of Historic Places district in the 1980s.

Demographic

Logan Square currently has an ethnically diverse population with a large concentration of young families whom Chicago real estate brokers say are attracted to the neighborhood’s quaint streets and diverse mix of cultural attractions. Recently joining the ranks of Bucktown as a trendy enclave, Logan Square has the eateries, cocktail bars, gastropubs, and vintage arcades to cement its new hipster reputation.

Landmarks and Institutions

Logan Square itself, which houses the Illinois Centennial Monument, is the area’s major landmark. Comfort Station on North Milwaukee Avenue, built in the early 1900s as a rest stop for trolley riders, has been renovated and transformed into a community space for art exhibitions, film screenings, and live music. Humboldt Park, designed in the mid-19th century by William Le Baron Jenney and one of Chicago’s most extensive green spaces, features tennis courts, an inland beach, bike paths, baseball fields, and rose beds. Palmer Square Park, which occupies seven acres, is home to a playground inspired by the book The Velveteen Rabbit.
