Bucktown Chicago Real Estate, Condos & Homes for Sale
Bucktown is known today as one of Chicago’s hippest and trendiest neighborhoods – the result of its evolution throughout its long and storied history. Bucktown started out as a rural community of Polish immigrants, and was named after the young goats or “bucks” that were raised in the backyards of these early settlers. The opening of the nearby 4-acre Wicker Park in 1870 attracted wealthy residents who built their homes around the park, including some of the earliest brick and stone homes constructed after the Great Chicago Fire. But in the 1930s, many of these wealthy residents moved to more developed Chicago neighborhoods, and their mansions were transformed into multi-family dwellings.
In the 1980s, young professionals came to the area and restored some of the mansions back into single-family homes. At around this time, Bucktown also became home to a large number of artists who were attracted by the neighborhood’s affordable housing and convenient access to The Loop. These artists opened dozens of galleries and studios, infusing the community with their hip and artistic spirit that has lived on to this day.
Bucktown’s hipster vibe and close proximity to downtown attracted more young professionals to the area, resulting in the construction of modern mid and high rises. Today, the neighborhood is a vibrant mix of old and new buildings and long-time and new residents, making it a truly dynamic and highly diverse community.
