Learn more about Jefferson Park, Chicago

Jefferson Park is bordered by Norwood Park to the northwest, Forest Glen to the northeast, Portage Park to the south, and the suburb of Harwood Heights to the south.

Jefferson Park settlements began in the 1830s with John Kinzie Clark and Elijah Wentworth, whose claim to land was near the Jefferson Park Metra Station, where he operated a tavern and inn.

Jefferson Park is home to the Northwest Chicago Historical Society, an organization that is dedicated to preserving the area's rich history as well as most historical events and lectures.

The actual Jefferson Park is a 7-acre park operated by the Chicago Park District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because it is located on the site of the Esdohr Farm.

The historic former Gateway Theatre Movie Palace that is now only part of the Copernicus Center is located in Jefferson Park. The Copernicus Center "Annex," which includes both an event space and offices, is also the location of the Jefferson Park Chamber of Commerce office.

Jefferson Park is home to the award-winning Gift Theatre Company, a professional theatre company co-founded by Jefferson Park native Michael Patrick Thornton.

Jefferson Park holds two large festivals each year: Jeff Fest in June and Taste of Polonia over Labor Day weekend.

Jefferson Park is nicknamed "The Gateway to Chicago" due to its transportation options and location. Residents also call it “Jeff Park.”
