Andersonville

Community Area: Edgewater

Just north of Uptown lies Andersonville, an old Scandinavian neighborhood, whose borders are loosely defined by Lawrence Avenue on the south, Peterson on the north, Broadway on the east and Damen on the west. Andersonville offers residents a vibrant, self-sustaining community just blocks from the lakefront and less than five miles from downtown.

Quiet, residential side streets feature handsome greystone two-flats, redbrick apartment buildings and large, wood-framed single-family homes. Buyers can also find gut rehabs, teardowns and new-construction homes.

Andersonville's Swedish heritage is still evident in its shops and restaurants, including the famous Ann Sather's, but the area has also sprouted an eclectic mix of Middle Eastern, Asian and European eateries, American gastro pubs and coffee houses. Its commercial district is made up almost entirely of locally owned, independent shops, taverns and service companies. A favorite attraction in Andersonville is the Swedish American Museum, which chronicles Swedish immigration to the Midwest in the early 1850's. Additionally, residents of the neighborhood are in close proximity to the lake front and several beaches.
