Andersonville: A History

Andersonville residents easily walk from their doors to top restaurants, unique shopping, and beautiful Lake Michigan. Seven miles north of the Loop, Chicago is at your fingertips with Lake Shore Drive, several bus routes, and the nearby CTA Red Line!

Since the 1960s, the neighborhood has been at the forefront of Chicago’s “shop local” movement. From stylish clothes and vintage furniture to comic books and curiosities, you can find it in Andersonville. Notable stores include Women and Children’s First, a classic feminist institution, and Brown Elephant, a hip thrift store run by Howard Brown Health Center. One can also find galleries, custom furniture stores, and more in the area.

Andersonville is much more than just a shopping hotspot. The community is known for some of Chicago’s most beloved local restaurants and bars.
