Sauganash is part of the Sauganash Historic District, which was built between 1912 and 1950 to provide a safe haven for middle class families fleeing the teeming city center.

With its streetscapes and meticulously designed public spaces, Sauganash has a distinct style which continues to set it apart as a one-of-a-kind suburb in Chicago.
