History

The Near West Side populated as workers looked west of downtown for more affordable living options. Hull House was founded here in 1889 and its community outreach had great effect on the quality of life for the many residents. The area’s population peaked over 150,000 in the 1950’s but is considerably less now. The Malcolm X College was founded here in 1911 and continues to serve the community’s junior college needs.

Atmosphere
