WEST TOWN: EAST VILLAGE, BUCKTOWN AND WICKER PARK

West Town includes Bucktown and Wicker Park.  Once farmland, Bucktown was named for the male goat: Buck.  In addition to area farmers, there were wealthy businessmen who originally settled in Wicker Park.  These families built their homes bordering Wicker Park and along the streets between Evergreen and Pierce Avenue.  Tree-lined Hoyne Avenue came to be known as “Beer Baron Row”, named for the stately and majestic stone mansions of German brewmasters.  In 1870 Charles and Joel Wicker purchased 80 acres of land to build up the neighborhood and later donated four of these acres to the city for a park, known as Wicker Park.

The housing includes storefront and warehouse loft condominium conversions, workman cottages, 2 flats, townhomes, newer condominiums, and single-family homes.

Commute time is 15 minutes to the loop, 40 minutes to O’Hare and Midway with easy access to northern suburbs via Metra Rail at Clybourn.
