Logan Square is one of the 77 city-designated community areas as well as a smaller neighborhood located within that community area on the northwest side of the City of Chicago. The Logan Square neighborhood is centered on the public square that serves as its namesake. The community area and neighborhood are named for General John A. Logan who served in the Civil War, and later in Congress. Originally developed by early settlers in the 1830s, the community was annexed into the City of Chicago in 1889 and renamed Logan Square. Many of its early residents were English or Scandinavian origin, mostly Norwegians and Danes, along with both a significant Polish and Jewish population that followed. Today, the neighborhood is home to a diverse population including Latinos, a number of ethnicities from Eastern Europe, and African-Americans.
