Located on the northwest side of Chicago, Jefferson Park is one of the city’s 77 designated community areas. It is bordered by nearby Norwood Park and Forest Glen, and is located directly north of 
Portage Park.

Originally founded as a settlement for traders, hunters, and farmers, Jefferson Park was annexed by the city of Chicago all the way back in 1889. Today, you can still feel the history in this quiet, residential-focused community. Poke around Jefferson Park, and you won’t only find lovely homes, tasty restaurants, and top-notch parks and green spaces - you’ll find a stunning old movie palace-turned-cultural center. You’ll find the headquarters of the Gift Theatre, one of Chicagoland’s top companies. You’ll find cultural festivals that woo visitors from around the region - and around the country.
