Chicago's Andersonville Neighborhood
"Located in Edgewater on the North Side of Chicago, Andersonville is a fun-filled neighborhood that has retained much of its Old World charm. First settled by Swedes in 1845, Andersonville is still very much a Swedish immigrant community, and a visit to the Swedish American Museum is a great way to learn about its rich history and culture. Andersonville's proximity to Lake Michigan's beaches and a vibrant dining and shopping scene have made it a very popular area for young professionals in recent years."
Located 5 miles north of the Loop, Andersonville is bounded by Bryn Mawr Avenue to the north, Glenwood Avenue to the east, Foster Avenue to the south and Ravenswood Avenue to the west.
