History in Hamlin Park
Social reformer Lucy Louisa Flower worked to convince the City of Chicago that courts should stop trying to abandon or neglect children as adults. As a result, in 1899, Cook County established the first Juvenile Court to hear cases of children under 16 years of age. Cities worldwide followed suit and established their juvenile court systems. Flower lived with her family in the Hamlin Park neighborhood at 1920 W Wellington Ave.
