Leading online resource for Chicago Jefferson Park real estate and homes for sale. Free property search and free resources. 20+ years of real estate experience.

Jefferson Park was settled in the 1830's by John Kinzie Clark and was later joined by other settlers and they had a small settlement around what is now known as Milwaukee, Lawrence and Higgins road. It remained a great northwest side quiet community. When the Kennedy expressway was built in the 1950's, Jefferson Park took off!!! With the arrival of the new blue line on the CTA and the arrival of a METRA station, it made it a really great place to live. Now you have the CTA bus terminal, with more than 800 buses arriving and departing each day, the Blue line to downtown and the METRA train all within a 5-minute ride from any home in Jefferson Park.
