Wicker Park Historic District

    Wicker Park Historic District

    The Wicker Park Historic District is part of the larger Wicker Park neighborhood – south of Bucktown in Chicago’s West Town Community. Bounded by Bell, Caton, Leavitt, Potomac and the el tracks on the east, it’s home to properties built between 1870 and 1930. Wicker Park Historic District was added as a Chicago Landmark District in 1991 and is recognized by the NPS National Registry of Historic Places.

    According to the Chicago Landmarks Website, “Pierce and Hoyne streets feature some of the city's largest and best examples of Victorian-era architecture and, due to the large number of brewery owners who built residences on Hoyne, that street became known as "Beer Baron Row." Early inhabitants were largely German and Scandinavian in origin, although a later influx of Polish immigrants led to the area being called the ‘Polish Gold Coast.’”

    Today, the greater Wicker Park neighborhood contains both historic and contemporary housing structures, and there is a hub of dining/shopping options on Division, North, and Milwaukee Avenues. The blue line is an important transportation line, and there is easy access to the I-90/94 Expressways.
