Sauganash

Community Area: Forest Glen

Officially, Sauganash is a neighborhood on the city’s Far North Side. But residents know it’s more like a suburb with a very short commute.

The neighborhood was designed as a haven for those fleeing the city once reliable transportation at the turn of the 19th century made commuting a thing. Downtown is only a 15-minute drive.

With wide-open spaces, forest preserves, tennis courts, trails, parks and beautiful homes, Sauganash is a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The neighborhood’s unique homes dating back to the 1920s include brick bungalows and English Tudors, single-family and attached homes in a range of sizes. Homes are situated around carefully designed streetscapes and public spaces.

Downtown is easily accessible by two Metra lines, CTA buses and a 15-minute drive on the nearby Edens Expressway. Students attend Sauganash Elementary and highly rated Taft High School.

The community has a vibrant restaurant scene with a variety of cuisines. You won’t find the chains or shopping centers of suburbia; instead the neighborhood has a uniquely local vibe.

A colorful mosaic mural under the Peterson Avenue overpass pays tribute to the neighborhood’s namesake, Chief Sauganash, also known as Billy Caldwell.
