Around the Neighborhood
Home to some of Chicago’s oldest and most historic communities, Back of the Yards is named after its proximity to the former Union Stock Yards. Many of the neighborhood’s earliest residents were part of the major industry of union meatpacking. With the closure of the stockyard operations in the 1970s, the neighborhood has undergone changes from its heyday as a model industrial/residential community.
