Tucked between Lake Michigan and Graceland Cemetery, Buena Park is a tight-knit community and nationally recognized historic district. Popular for its many tree-lined blocks and Prairie-style historic mansions, Buena Park faces Montrose Beach and Harbor—both popular destinations for tens of thousands of Chicagoans. Founded as a bucolic retreat from urban life in the 1860s, by the 1930s Buena Park took on its current densely settled character, largely thanks to the construction of the “L.” Despite the more recent construction of many high-rise buildings, the area retains much of its historic charm, particularly in the landmarked Hutchinson Street area. The rest of the neighborhood is also on the National Register of Historic Places.
