Uptown was originally settled in the nineteenth century by German and Swedish immigrant farmers. Today, it is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the Windy City. What happened in between those years is a fascinating story, and one we hope to chronicle in this collection of Uptown Chicago Resources. Here you’ll find an assortment of articles, stories, and images about the people, places, and events that have shaped the Uptown neighborhood. We welcome new contributions—learn how you can submit your photos and stories by going here.
