One of the most suburban-feeling neighborhoods in the city, Edgebrook is an community that is home to two golf courses, part of a forest preserve, and beautiful homes on tree-lined streets. The land where Edgebrook now stands was originally the hunting ground and home of the Potowatomi Indians, and in the late 1800s it became somewhat of a railroad community. In fact, the portion of the neighborhood that is now the Old Edgebrook Historic District "contains houses that reflect that railroad link," many of which were built specifically for Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railway management, as well as other stately homes built at "various periods in various architectural styles."
