 Review Old Town Chicago Condos Listings

Prior to 1833’s Treaty of Chicago, Old Town Chicago was initially settled by Native Americans, namely the Illinois, Miami, and Potawatomi tribes.  Once the Native Americans were driven out, the area was home primarily to Catholic immigrants from Germany.  

Old Town Condos

Rich in history, Old Town is comprised of many of the city’s Victorian buildings.  St. Michael's Church is one of the area’s most notable landmarks, and amazingly, it withstood the intense blaze of the Great Chicago Fire. Also adding to Old Town’s distinctive character, a great deal of its alleys and streets pre-date the notorious fire.

The 1930’s saw a surge in artistic creativity, with many of Washington Square Park’s artists migrating to the area.  Established in 1927, Carl Street Studios on Burton Place served as a home to the art crowd.

Old Town Chicago went through another significant change in the 1960’s, as the neighborhood’s original families fled to the suburbs.  Victorian buildings with storefronts quickly became available to rent for cheap, and boutiques like Crate and Barrel emerged.

Since the 1960’s, the Old Town area has become home to ground-breaking developments in the arenas of live comedy and theater.  Among the popular new venues were the Second City, Zanies Comedy Club and Tony & Tina’s Wedding.  The decade also saw the popularization of folk music.
