Get to Know Logan Square
Logan Square is famous for its wide, tree-studded boulevards and parkways lined by distinguished mansions and elegant vintage buildings. Historically, many wealthy Chicago merchants built massive greystones, creating many modern opportunities for single- and multi-family homes.
Logan Square is just west of the Kennedy Expressway (Routes 90/94). Kimball, Fullerton and Diversey avenues are its main thoroughfares. The actual Square is a picturesque traffic circle at Kedzie and Logan Boulevard, with a small hill and elegant marble column. Recently, vintage lighting fixtures have been installed along the Boulevard to enhance its historic character.
