Lincoln Park Neighborhood History
The Lincoln Park neighborhood, named for President Lincoln, was settled by German immigrants who turned the existing swampy ground into farmland. Farm-centered industry followed, and then came the Fire. In the wake of the fire, the area was rebuilt as a residential area. Half of the residences in the current neighborhood date to this period. Suburban flight in the 1950s led to the neighborhood becoming a prime address for a younger, urban crowd.
The Lincoln Park of today is one of the most consistently sought-after neighborhoods. Trendy, hip, and exciting, Lincoln Park is the place to be.
