Welcome to Andersonville. A neighborhood on Chicago’s north side, Andersonville is known for its Swedish roots, historic architecture, and bustling urban main street, Clark Street. When you arrive in Andersonville, you feel you have arrived someplace special. While our roots are Swedish, we are also recognized as the “shop local capital of Chicago,”
supporting the largest network of local and independent businesses in the area. Home to one of Chicago’s largest LGBTQ+ populations, Andersonville is a community full of
pride and a commitment to equality. Andersonville is for everyone.

We are also a neighborhood of stories. With over 325 businesses in the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce membership, we hope you discover a few of these stories by visiting Andersonville and meeting our business owners face-to-face. Each is unique, and each has a reason for loving this neighborhood.

Please visit the tabs to your right to learn more about Andersonville’s history, request a copy of our free 2018-19 Neighborhood Guide, discover relevant Andersonville news articles, listen to #AlwaysAndersonville: The Podcast, find a place to stay while you’re here, and discover more about our businesses in the area.
