Sauganash Historic District

    Sauganash Historic District

    Sauganash Historic District is the site of the Indian Treaty of 1835- today, it’s the area roughly bounded by the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Tracks (east) to I-90 (west), Devon to the north and Bryn Mawr to the south.

    Homes in the neighborhood were built between 1912 and 1950, as it was conceived as a “haven for middle-class families fleeing the crowded city center.” The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1910. Sauganash, along with Forest Glen and Edgebrook neighborhoods, are old favorites of Chicagoans who crave lovely quaint homes, large yards, and strong community ties.

    Connected to Chicago via Peterson Avenue, the metra commuter line, and I-90 (Edens Expressway), it’s a popular community for people who want to live in the city of Chicago and still enjoy the quiet feel of the suburbs. Architectural styles include Tudor Revival, French Normandy, Cape Cod, and even some fabulous mid-century ranch homes.

    The local schools are wonderful, and there are also fantastic parochial schools in the area. Located where the Forest Preserve meets the city, golfers also love Billy Caldwell golf course and easy access to O’Hare International Airport.

    Also of note:

    Old Edgebrook District A three-square-block area surrounded by the Cook County Forest Preserve, and roughly bounded by Caldwell and Devon (6400N) on the north, Central Ave. (5500E) on the east, and the North Branch of the Chicago River on the west. Laid out in 1894. (December 14, 1988)
