HISTORY OF PORTAGE PARK The historic community of Portage Park was given its name from an old Indian portage which connected the Des Plaines and Chicago Rivers. In the early 18th and 19th centuries, Native Indian members of the Pottawatomie, Ottawa, Chippewa and Fox tribes frequented and portaged through the Portage Park area. This region was too wet and marshy for permanent settlement; however, the area had an abundant supply of beaver, elk, wild turkey and a few bison. It became a convenient place for French fur traders and voyageurs to trade goods with the Native American tribes. All those who portaged through the area would go between the north branch of Chicago River and the Des Plaines River. When the park and surrounding community were established in the early part of the 20th century, the residents selected the name Portage Park in homage to the areas early history. The word “portage” means to carry canoes and supplies overland from one navigable water to another. The Pottawatomie word for portage is wbahawdon. The Indians, and later the explorers and the trappers, used many portages in the Chicago area. However, a minor but relatively easy portage existed along what is now known as Irving Park Road. The trail was marshy and in wet weather almost be canoed. Two ridges ran parallel to the lake shore. One is now Cicero Avenue and the other runs along present day Narragansett forming the natural watershed between the Mississippi and the Great Lakes drainage systems. The two ridges generally held water between them making the portage easier. The Indians did not remain. Spring floods and marsh lands moved them elsewhere: however they did leave us the legacy of Portage Park. This significant portage connected the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes with the Des Plaines, Illinois and Mississippi Rivers which flowed into the Gulf of Mexico. The ridge between Narragansett and Harlem is a continental divide. Standing water in the savanna areas between natural ridges such as Milwaukee and Narragansett Avenues allowed canoes to float part of the way between the two ridges. Not until after 1816 did settlers begin to arrive in this area. The Indians signed a treaty in that year giving the land south of the Indian boundary line, which runs southeast along Rogers Avenue and Forest Preserve Drive, to the United States. A continued conflict with the Blackhawk Indians that ended in 1832 prevented any substantial settlement until the mid- 1830’s. The Northwest Plank Road, built as a toll road at a cost of $51,000, provided comparatively easy travel to and from booming Chicago. As a result, the 6 corners area began to grow rapidly. The Chicago urban sprawl began to spill over to the Jefferson Township area in the 1860’s. Workers and professionals sought to refuge from City noises. Newer residential areas sprung up along transportation lines, especially the new Chicago Northwestern Railroad. The CNW provided access to employment and shopping in the city. In 1862, the first Jefferson Town Hall was built at the southeast corner of Irving Park and Milwaukee. People came to 6 Corners to shop. New stores and businesses were commonplace. The first real estate

deal was the southwest corner of Cicero and Irving to developers Koester and Zander in 1889. This was also the year the town of Jefferson, including most of today’s Portage Park, was annexed to the city. The area remained a quiet suburban community until the Milwaukee street car line opened in 1907 and expansion began. Farming in the area proved to be difficult, as the land remained marshy, and ditch digging was the only was to maintain dry property. Residential properties sprang up mostly in the northern and eastern sections. In 1912 neighbors formed the Portage Park District, and the following year the park district board of commissioners condemned 40 acres on the northeast corner of Irving Park Road and Central Avenue for the purpose of developing a park. Initially the commissioners tried to raise money through a property tax. When residents objected that the tax was inequitable and that it might lead to corruption and graft, the assessment was invalidated in court. It was soon discovered, however, the tax was an unnecessary measure, since park development was progressing without it. A portion of the park officially opened in midsummer 1916, and the Portage Park Citizen’s Celebration Association formed to organize park events. Visitors to the park that summer enjoyed a cool swim in a small sand-bottomed lagoon. In the coming years the park became a popular gathering place as other recreational facilities wee added. In addition to the swimming lagoon, tennis courts and baseball fields were added, and in 1922 the Fieldhouse was completed. A spectacular Fourth of July festival was held, complete with parade and athletic exhibitions. Attendance reached an estimated 40,000 persons, who come from numerous Chicago neighborhoods. In 1934 Portage Park was merged into the Chicago Park District. With improved transportation and the inducement of the beautiful park, developers began building homes and urban dwellers flocked to the community. By 1940, its population had risen to 66,357. The center of social and athletic events remained at the park which had expanded to 36 acres and added eight tennis courts, an athletic field, a gymnasium with an indoor pool, and basketball courts by 1989. Portage Park features an Olympicsize swimming pool which was built for the 1959 Pan American Games, and was also the site for the 1972 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials. The 1990 census indicated that the population in the community had decreased to 56,513 and consisted mainly of residents of Polish, Italian, Irish and German descent. By 2000 population had rebounded to 65,340 and included a diverse ethnic and racial mix. The present community is as residential neighborhood with excellent shopping at the famous Six Corners Business district and superior transportation, including the CNW, extensive RTA bus lines and the Kennedy Expressway with its Rapid Transit facility. There are many excellent schools, churches, hospitals, medical centers and libraries. These amenities, along with friendly and helpful people, make Portage Park a fine place in which to live and work.

The chain of events leading to the development of Irving Park began in 1843 when Major Noble purchased a 160-acre tract of land from Christopher L. Ward, upon which Noble established a farm. The boundaries of the farm today would be Montrose on the north, Irving Park to the south, Pulaski to the east and Kostner to the west. Major Noble’s house on the east side of Elston just south of Montrose doubled as the Blackthorn Tavern, serving travelers coming to and from the City of Chicago along the North West Plank Road (Elston). After many years of successful farming, Noble sold the farm and retired to McHenry County. Four men from New York, Charles T. Race, John S. Brown, Adelbert E. Brown and John Wheeler, purchased the farm in 1869 for $20,000. Shortly thereafter, they purchased an additional 80-acre tract immediately south of the Noble farm from John Gray for $25,000. This parcel bounded by Irving Park Road on the north, Grace on the south, Pulaski to the east and Kostner to the west was part of his original 320 acre farm. The intention of the men was to continue farming, but after seeing the success of suburban communities which had recently opened for settlement, they decided to subdivide their land and create an exclusive suburb seven miles from the city. An agreement was reached with the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad allowing their trains to stop in Irving Park if the developers would build a station. This was done and the station, still at the same location, continues to serve neighborhood residents today. The original name chosen for the suburb was “Irvington” after the author Washington Irving, but it was discovered that another town in Illinois had already used the name, so the name of “Irving Park” was adopted. The original developers all built substantial mansions along Irving Park Boulevard between 1870 and 1874. All have since been razed with the exception of the Stephen A. Race mansion, which was moved at the turn of the century and now stands at 3945 North Tripp. Another early home, built for Erastus Brown, father of John and Adelbert, also remains at 3812 North Pulaski although greatly altered. The Chicago fire of 1871, which was watched from the cupolas of several area homes, brought an influx of new residents who built many unique but slightly less pretentious homes. The 1880’s found residents beginning to miss some of the advantages they had left behind in the city and 1889, the community, along with the rest of Jefferson Township, was annexed to Chicago. Water piped to the area from Lake Michigan, the establishments of a Fire Department and streetcar service along major streets were some of the improvements to occur during the first years after annexation.

first home built in 1856 at 4362 West Grace survives today in a remarkable state of preservation and is the oldest house in Irving Park. Gray later built a house on the northwest corner of Milwaukee and Lowell to reflect his newfound wealth, and it was a community showplace. Indoor plumbing with gold fixtures, exotic woods and expensive marbles highlighted his home. It was razed about 1915. Although annexation of Irving Park into the City of Chicago as part of Jefferson Township occurred in 1889, in the 1890s streets were still unpaved and unlighted. As improvements were added, the main thoroughfare became a construction zone; streets were updated and public transportation was created. A residential boom between 1895 and 1914 added more than 5,000 new buildings, of which 1,200 were multifamily residences. In 1910, the residents of Irving Park established their own park district and created eight local parks, the largest of which is Independence Park. Considered one of the finest landscaped neighborhood parks in the City for many years, Independence Park also served as the site of local Fourth of July celebrations. This annual event featured a parade down Irving Park Boulevard involving hundreds of children, athletic events, a band concert and an awardwinning display of fireworks. In 1933, the Irving Park Park District merged with the Chicago Park District. Irving Park continued to grow steadily during the first decades of the twentieth century. Several large apartment buildings featuring elaborate wrought iron fencing, fountains and terra cotta details were constructed primarily north of Irving Park Boulevard. The Depression and war years saw many of the larger homes converted into rooming houses and two-family homes. The prosperity following the war was diminished when it was learned the Northwest (Kennedy) Expressway would cut directly through the heart of Irving Park. This resulted in the displacement of many residents and loss of many homes and businesses. During the 1960’s, condominiums replaced several larger homes along Keystone, Kedvale and Keeler north of the expressway. Irving Park’s population grew from 49,489 in 1980 to 58,643 in 2000. During those decades the Hispanic population increased from 9 percent to 43 percent. The combined efforts of the residents of the Irving Park area has helped to return the community to its original glory and to what has been referred to a “suburb within the city.”

Over 200 homes had been built in the original subdivision within the first 20 years. Several additions to Irving Park had greatly increased the 240 acre-suburb. Grayland, which was opened for settlement in 1874, extended west from Kostner to Cicero, between Irving Park and Addison. Subdivided by John Gray, the first Republican Sheriff of Cook County, on a portion of his extensive farm, it grew around the Grayland station of the Milwaukee Road Railroad, which is still in active use today.
