History
Lincoln Park became incorporated in 1837, back when it was Chicago’s northern boundary. Land was selling at $150/acre then! Throughout the years Lincoln Park has been a melting pot of different nationalities moving into Chicago making Lincoln Park the eclectic town that it is today. Lincoln Park gets its name from the park that now stretches miles past the neighborhood. The park runs from the Near North Side all the way up to Edgewater.

Current
Today Lincoln Park is packed with its diverse collection of designer boutiques, neighborhood cafes and dining from all around the world. The center of Lincoln Park holds DePaul University adding to the diverse offering of arts and entertainment.
