Logan Square is an official community area, historical neighborhood, and public square on the northwest side of the City of Chicago. The Logan Square community area is one of the 77 city of Chicago designated community areas established for planning purposes. The Logan Square neighborhood, located within the Logan Square community area, is centered on the public square that serves as its namesake, located at the three-way intersection of Milwaukee Avenue, Logan Boulevard and Kedzie Avenue.

The community area of Logan Square is, in general, bounded by the Metra/Milwaukee District North Line railroad on the west, the North Branch of the Chicago River on the east, Diversey Parkway on the north, and the 606 (also known as the Bloomingdale Trail) on the south. The area is characterized by the prominent historical boulevards, stately greystones and large bungalow-style homes.

History of Logan Square

Logan Square derives its name from General John A. Logan, an esteemed American soldier and political figure. Serving as a notable landmark within the city, the square itself is a vast public green space, meticulously designed by architect William Le Baron Jenney, landscape architect Jens Jensen, and others. It stands as the majestic northwest endpoint of the Chicago Boulevard System, intersecting Kedzie and Logan Boulevards with Milwaukee Avenue. Gracing the center of this square is the Illinois Centennial Monument, erected in 1918 to honor the 100th anniversary of Illinois' statehood. Crafted by Henry Bacon, renowned architect of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., and sculpted by Evelyn Beatrice Longman, the monument rises 70 feet tall, fashioned from "Tennessee-pink" marble in Doric style, echoing the proportions of the columns found in Ancient Greece's Parthenon. Adorned with an eagle atop, symbolizing both the state and the nation, the monument was made possible through funding from the Benjamin Ferguson Fund. Surrounding the base are reliefs portraying allegorical representations of Native Americans, explorers, Jesuit missionaries, farmers, and laborers, symbolizing Illinois' significant contributions to the nation. These contributions span transportation, education, commerce, agriculture, religion, and exploration, reflecting the pioneering spirit that defined the state's first century of existence.

Neighborhoods in Logan Square Community Area

Belmont Gardens

Belmont Gardens spans across the Chicago Community Areas of Logan Square and Avondale, neighboring Kosciuszko Park, which is situated within its northwest section, where the Pulaski Industrial Corridor meets residential zones. The boundaries of Belmont Gardens are generally defined by Pulaski Road to the East, the Union Pacific/Northwest rail line to the West, Belmont Avenue to the North, and Fullerton Avenue to the South.

In the late 1880s, the area between Fullerton Avenue and Diversey Avenue, extending from Kimball to the Union Pacific/Northwest rail line, was predominantly vacant, mainly consisting of rural "truck farms" typical of Jefferson Township. This began to change in 1889 when this rustic area was annexed to the city in anticipation of the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, which would draw attention to Chicago.

Urban development in Belmont Gardens was initiated by Homer Pennock, who established the industrial village of Pennock, Illinois. Focused on Wrightwood Avenue, originally designated as "Pennock Boulevard," this area was envisioned as a substantial industrial and residential district. Although initially promising, the village experienced setbacks and declined, as chronicled in the "History of Cook County, Illinois" by Weston Arthur Goodspee and Daniel David Healy. Despite the decline of Pennock's venture, Chicago's rapid expansion transformed the former farmlands into clusters of factories and residences.

At the turn of the 20th century, Belmont Gardens and Avondale were on the outskirts of the Milwaukee Avenue Polish Corridor, a continuous Polish settlement along this thoroughfare from Wicker Park's Polonia Triangle to Irving Park Road.

The proximity to the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad facilitated industrial growth in Belmont Gardens, contributing to the development of the city's Pulaski Industrial Corridor. Adjacent to his factory, Walter E. Olson constructed the Olson Park and Waterfall Complex, hailed as one of the "Seven Lost Wonders of Chicago" by the Chicago Tribune. This 22-acre garden and waterfall complex, crafted from 800 tons of stone and 800 yards of soil by 200 workers over six months, was a cherished destination for family outings.

Latino settlement began in the 1980s, and Belmont Gardens still retains its blue-collar atmosphere amidst the increasing gentrification seen in neighboring Logan Square and Avondale.

Bucktown

Bucktown, east of the Logan Square community area in Chicago and directly north of Wicker Park, owes its name to the large population of goats raised in the neighborhood during the 19th century when it was a vital part of the city's Polish Downtown. Originally known as Kozie Prery (Goat Prairie) in Polish, its boundaries are Fullerton Avenue to the north, Western Avenue to the west, Bloomingdale or North Avenue to the south, and the Kennedy Expressway to the east. Initially, Bucktown's boundaries were Fullerton Avenue, Damen Avenue, Armitage Avenue, and Western Avenue.

Primarily residential, Bucktown features a blend of older single-family homes, contemporary builds with distinctive architecture, and converted industrial lofts. The Horween Leather Company has been situated on North Elston Avenue since 1920. The neighborhood's roots trace back to Polish working-class settlers in the 1830s, followed by a significant influx of Germans in 1848 and the establishment of the town of Holstein in 1854, which later merged with Chicago in 1863. The late 19th and early 20th centuries witnessed further immigration from Poland, spurred by the annexation of Jefferson Township and the completion of the Logan Square Branch of the Metropolitan Elevated Lines. This period also saw the construction of three opulent churches in the "Polish Cathedral style": St. Hedwig's, the former Cathedral of All Saints, and St. Mary of the Angels.

Originally, Bucktown's streets bore names significant to the Polish community, such as Kosciusko, Sobieski, Pulaski, and Leipzig. However, due to political influence from the German population, these names were changed in 1895 and 1913 to Hamburg, Frankfort, Berlin, and Holstein, respectively. Anti-German sentiment during World War I led to further renaming, resulting in today's more Anglo-Saxon sounding names like McLean, Shakespeare, Charleston, and Palmer.

Polish immigration surged during and after World War II, with as many as 150,000 Poles estimated to have settled in Polish Downtown between 1939 and 1959 as Displaced Persons. Milwaukee Avenue served as the anchor of the city's "Polish Corridor," a continuous area of Polish settlement extending from Polonia Triangle to Avondale's Polish Village. Additionally, the neighborhood saw an influx of European Jews and Belarusians during this period.

Latino migration began in the 1960s, with Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and later Mexicans settling in Bucktown. Puerto Ricans, in particular, concentrated along Damen and Milwaukee Avenues in the 1980s after being displaced by gentrification in Lincoln Park. The Puerto Rican community supported groups like the Young Lords during Harold Washington's mayoral campaign. The late 20th century saw the rise of an artists' community, leading to widespread gentrification and an influx of young professionals. Today, trendy taverns, restaurants, and upscale residential buildings characterize the neighborhood.

Bucktown boasts a vibrant shopping district along Damen Avenue, accessible via the Blue Line and with multiple entrances to the elevated Bloomingdale Trail, also known as the 606.

Kosciuszko Park

Spanning the Chicago Community Areas of Logan Square and Avondale, Kosciuszko Park, affectionately known as "Koz Park" or the "Land of Koz," exemplifies a local identity shaped by the green spaces developed during Chicago's Progressive Era.

The park's boundaries are generally defined by Central Park Avenue to the East, Pulaski Road to the West, George Street to the North, and Altgeld to the South. Positioned at the Northwestern edge of the Milwaukee Avenue "Polish Corridor," Kosciuszko Park is part of a continuous stretch of Polish settlement along this thoroughfare, extending from Polonia Triangle to Avondale's Polish Village.

Near the park's border with Avondale stands St. Hyacinth Basilica, established in 1894 as a spiritual refuge for locals. The basilica houses relics associated with Pope John Paul II and an icon adorned with a jeweled crown blessed by the pontiff. Other institutions contributing to the area's Polish community include the Polish Franciscan Sisters, who built St. Joseph Home for the Aged and Crippled in 1897, the city's first Catholic nursing home. The nuns also operated a church vestment workshop, showcasing their expertise in sewing.

Kosciuszko Park, dedicated in 1916, honors the Polish patriot Tadeusz Kosciuszko, known for designing and building West Point during the American Revolution. The park was one of the original parks of the Northwest Park District established in 1911, aligning with the Progressive Movement's goal of providing one park for each ten square miles.
