"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."
