Logan Square

Logan Square is named for General John A. Logan, an American soldier and political leader. Originally LS was bordered by Jefferson, Avondale and Maplewood neighborhoods and was developed by early settlers like Martin Kimbell, who Kimball Ave was named after. 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. In 1889 this area was annexed into the City of Chicago and renamed Logan Square.
