Thursday Doors in Old Town Chicago

Old Town is one of the oldest (surprise, surprise) neighbourhoods in Chicago. It used to be known as the “Cabbage Patch” as German immigrants in the mid 19th Century were fond of growing vegetables in the marshy ground. There isn’t a well defined area designated as Old Town, but it refers to the streets around St Michael’s. This was one of the few churches which were not consumed by the great fire of 1870.

More doors from Old Town next week.
