A neighborhood on Chicago’s north side, Andersonville is known for its Swedish roots, historic architecture, and bustling urban main street, Clark Street. When you arrive in Andersonville, you feel you have arrived someplace special. While our roots are Swedish, we are also recognized as the “shop local capital of Chicago,” supporting the largest network of local and independent businesses in the area. Home to one of Chicago’s largest LGBTQ+ populations, Andersonville is  a community full of pride and a commitment to equality. Andersonville is for everyone.


Andersonville is also known as a strong business community. With nearly 400 members, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce nurtures a growing and dynamic network of small business owners and entrepreneurs.
