Scottsdale, part of the Ashburn community area and home to Chicago's first airport, is a small community located on the city's southwest side. The neighborhood was built on the land of the former Ashburn Flying Field, which opened in 1916 and served as Chicago's main airport until 1939, when it was supplanted by Chicago Municipal Airport (now Midway Airport). The land was slow to develop after the airport's closing, but that changed in the early 1950s when developer Raymond Lutgert subdivided the old air field and named the new area after his son, Scott.
