Martin Kimbell was one of the early settlers that developed this community originally back in the 1830s. The community started out around the towns of Avendale, Maplewood, and Jefferson. However, in 1889, this area was annexed into the City of Chicago and renamed Logan Square. The Logan Square community initially contained many Scandinavian or English inhabitants. Most of the Scandinavian residents were Danes or Norwegians. However, a sizable Jewish and Polish population also moved into the Logan Square community.
The Logan Square community has grown quite a bit since then and now houses more than 72,000 residents. You can find a diverse population in Logan Square, including African-Americans, Latinos, and several different ethnicities from Eastern Europe, primarily Polish residents. Quite of Chicago’s aspiring artists now live in Logan Square due to higher housing costs in nearby neighborhoods like Wicker Park. The incredible park-like boulevards are one of Logan Square’s main attractions and they are part of Chicago’s 26-mile Chicago Boulevard System, which recently got the protection of a Chicago Landmark Designation.
