Edgebrook Chamber of Commerce

About

A Brief History

Edgebrook is a small residential area in the northwest corner of Chicago and is part of the City of Chicago. It is bordered on the north by the Village of Skokie, on the northeast by Lincolnwood and on the south by Elston Avenue.

The land where Edgebrook now stands was originally the hunting ground and home of the Potowatomi Indians.

Edgebrook still retains some independence from the City of Chicago and have a standard of homes well above the the median of the city. The business district is centered primarily along three blocks of Devon Avenue and the intersections of Central and Caldwell Avenues. Most of the businesses are either old family businesses which have been in Edgebrook for decades, or small shops owned and managed by one or two owners. The business area has retained a small town atmosphere with big town advantages.

The growth of the community has progressed gradually through the years because of responsive government operations with efficiency, progressiveness and an eye toward long range goals having to do with the unique character of the community.

Today was a busy day!!! I needed Buttermilk for my soda bread and I ended up getting hands down the BEST chicken pot pies!!!! My children LOVED them and since I'm trying to be good on portions, I saved the other half for tommmorrow. Plus,I may consume a half load of my Soda Bread warm with butter. Thank you Happy Foods for having such delicious dinners for our Edgebrook Community and Buisness District. ... See MoreSee Less
