Publisher Description

Nestled in the middle of the southwest side of Chicago are the neighborhoods of Chicago Lawn, West Lawn, and Marquette Manor. All three border picturesque Marquette Park, which intertwines their histories. The pages of Legendary Locals of Chicago Lawn and West Lawn are filled with tales of people who make up the story, or, in some cases, add spice to the story of this section of the city of Chicago. Highlighted locals include the lady known as the "Witch of Wall Street" and the Roman Catholic priest who took her to court to save his parishioners from deadly disease, the gentlemen known as the "Dean of 63rd Street" and the "Mayor of 69th Street," as well as the "Polka King" and the "Father of Little League." Through their actions, the people featured have impacted the neighborhood. It may be due to acts of kindness or dedication to a cause; they might be builders; they might be gangsters; they might be store owners, but they are all interesting figures.
