Neighborhood Description


Formerly a distant suburb of Chicago, Andersonville saw an influx of Swedish immigrants during the 1850s that came to live and work on the farms that covered much of the area. While many of these Swedes moved out of the area during the Depression and post-war periods, the Swedish influence in the neighborhood has remained strong throughout the years. Andersonville is home to the Swedish American Museum, the Swedish Bakery, a handful of other Swedish shops, and the Swedish-themed summer festival, Midsommarfest, all the while making the neighborhood one of the most concentrated areas of Swedish culture in the country.
