Old Town Chicago Homes & Real Estate

Aptly named for its old, rich history and eclectic and vintage vibe, the former "Cabbage Patch" (a nickname earned from the German settlers who farmed the land) is now a hot spot for culture, art, and laidback living. Strolling down the narrow streets, you'll find a mix of timeless architecture and chic new buildings. Old Town hosts St. Michael's Church, a beautiful Victorian-style structure and one of only seven buildings that survived the Chicago Fire in 1871. More memories of days yonder are apparent in the quirky vintage businesses that continue to lure tourists in with ease, including The Fudge Pot, selling elaborate chocolate creations and handmade fudge molds since 1967, and The Old Town Ale House, where you'll feel as if you're stepping back in time to its '58 opening. The bustling urban neighborhood is also a hot spot for art. Visit the Old Town Triangle Art Center and the annual Old Town Art Fair to explore your inner creativity as well as view new, nationally acclaimed artwork. Take a quiet stroll down the block, then go barhopping down Wells Street with the younger crowd, and don't miss out on the birthplace of improv, The Second City, a famous comedy joint that launched the careers of Chris Farley, Bill Murray, Tina Fey, and John Belushi to name a very small few of big names. You'll get the best of both worlds in Old Town, with relaxed and tranquil residential blocks accompanied by endless charm and liveliness waiting just around the corner.
