Lincoln Square Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Illinois
Chicago's Lincoln Square is a thriving, multicultural neighborhood alive with the sounds and tastes of its distinctive German ancestry. While many of the town's 40,000 residents may commute downtown for work, each unique neighborhood is filled with charming architecture, historical landmarks, culturally rich public art and a variety of fine dining makes it a pleasure to come home. Lincoln Square's murals, statues and sculptures reflect its European heritage and devotion to its namesake - Abraham Lincoln. The Lincoln Statue portrays a beardless Abraham Lincoln as he appeared in the area on many occasions. The Lombard lamp was presented to the mayor of Chicago by the city of Hamburg, Germany, who placed the lamp in Lincoln Square as a reminder of its German roots. Although Lincoln Square is an historical enclave, it is also a bustling, independent area of Chicago and its residents find it easy to enjoy all the big-city amenities Chicago has to offer. Schools in Lincoln Square are part of Chicago Public Schools, a premier urban school district serving nearly 400,000 students in grades K- through 12. The Chicago Park District manages more than 220 stunning parks and green spaces on more than 7,300 acres of land throughout Chicago. Lincoln Square residents enjoy close proximity to numerous Chicago services and exciting destinations, but the neighborhood they call home offers equally satisfying venues and a little slice of history. A stroll down the tree-lined streets of Lincoln Square offers a look at the diverse assortment of architecture, which is both a reflection of the traditions passed along from one generation of immigrants to another and the unique, signature style unmistakably Chicago's own.
