About Old Town
Old Town (sometimes called Old Town Triangle) is a neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois, bounded by Eugenie Street on the north, Division Street on the south, Halsted on the west, and Clark Street on the east. It sits inside the larger neighborhood known as Lincoln Park. It is part of Chicago’s 43rd ward. It was originally settled by German-Catholic immigrants in the mid to late 19th century.
Old Town is considered an affluent and historic neighborhood, home to many of Chicago’s older, Victorian-era buildings. The neighborhood is also home to St. Michaels Church, one of few buildings to survive the great Chicago Fire.
