Community Area: Kenwood

The community of Kenwood has been home to a long list of esteemed residents some might call the greatest of all time – from Muhammad Ali and Muddy Waters to President Barack Obama.

The neighborhood along the southern shores of Lake Michigan has long been popular with Chicago’s elite, who built some of the city’s largest homes here to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago. The area’s lavish single-family homes remain among the largest in the city.

With impressive collection of Art Deco architecture and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, the Hyde Park-Kenwood Historic District has gained national attention as the home of U.S. President Barack Obama.

The Hyde Park Art Center is a community mainstay, with major exhibitions and events. The neighborhood boasts a growing commercial district with shops and restaurants in addition to its residential areas.

The community is served by public schools including the Kenwood Academy, Canter Middle School, King College Prep High School, Ariel Community Academy and Beula Shoesmith Elementary School.
