Around the Neighborhood
Washington Heights is immediately east of popular Beverly but with more affordable housing options. This far southwest side Chicago neighborhood has seen plenty of transformation over the years. Settled in the 1830s by Dutch and German farmers, it remained rural until the 1860s. Over the next 15 years, the farmland was developed into the community that is now known as Washington Heights. It has always been a fairly peaceful neighborhood, even during the Civil Rights Movement.
