Wicker Park is an area with a rich history beginning in 1837 when it became incorporated as a part of the city of Chicago. The Rolling Steel Mill brought industry to the area in 1857. In 1871 after the Chicago Fire, the area found a large increase in residential and commercial building and was home to some of Chicago’s most prominent families such as the Pritzkers, Uihleins, and the Crowns.
Wicker Park is located Northeast of the Loop and West of Lincoln Park. It also sits on the southern border of Bucktown.
The two areas got their names based on the immigrants that lived there. In the 1870’s while Wicker Park was still forming, developers Charles and Joel Wicker bought four acres of land to develop a neighborhood and donated four acres of it to the city to build a park. That park was named Wicker Park, and the name stuck for the rest of the neighborhood. Bucktown got its name because it had a high Polish population who often kept goats in their homes. Goat in Polish is “buck,” hence the name.
