    Old Town


    Sorry we are experiencing system issues. Please try again.

    First settled by German immigrants in the late 1800’s, Old Town is a well-known area of Chicago known for its architecture and Victorian buildings.  Old Town has a variety of boutique stores, tree-lines streets, many unique coffee shops and bakeries, and is also home to the famous Second City comedy club.  It is no wonder that Old Town Chicago real estate is popular among so many Chicago residents.

    Old Town is well known for many Victorian buildings, and also for the popular Wells Street, which is lines with boutique shops, as well as numerous restaurants and bars.  It is only a mile away from Chicago’s popular Gold Coast neighborhood, and just over 2 miles away from Chicago’s Loop.

    Old Town Chicago real estate is very popular and known as a great place to live due to the uniqueness of the neighborhood, close proximity to the Chicago downtown city center, and also being within easy walking distance to Lake Michigan.  Old Town Chicago real estate, and the Old Town neighborhood, is bordered by Clark Street to the east, Halsted Street and Clybourn Avenue to the west, Armitage Avenue to the north, and Division Street to the south.

    Shortly after the second World War, Old Town used to be known as “North Town.”  However, in the late 1940’s, Old Town took on its current name both due to the deterioration of the buildings as well as their hosting of annual art fairs known as the Old Town Holiday.  The annual art fairs continue to this day and have become a must-see for many Chicago residents.
