The Neighborhood Of Ashburn
Ashburn didn't have the best image back in the 1800s, when it came by its name. In those days, it served as a dumping ground for ashes from the furnaces of Chicago homeowners.

For most of the last half-century, however, the community bound by the B&O Railroad tracks, the city's Cicero Avenue border, and 77th and 87th Streets has been considered among Chicago's most liveable areas.

This isnít surprising, considering how Ashburn's history mirrors that of many near-Chicago suburbs. Annexed by the city in 1889, the community gained only 19 homes in the next 50 years. But in the 1940s and '50s, more than 2,400 homes were constructed.

Another 656 were added in the '60s and '70s. The diversity of home styles found in Ashburn has its roots in the suburban migration that followed World War II. Bucking the pattern in other outlying communities, the westernmost part of Ashburn was established first.

Many returning veterans and their wives settled in Scottsdale, a new subdivision on Ashburn's western border between Kostner and Cicero Avenues and 79th and 85th Streets. Here, homes were priced to fit modest budgets. The curving streets, novel for the city's Southwest Side, promised a rustic charm. The subdivision lured folks who had grown up in two- and three-flat buildings on Chicago's South Side and sought the American dream of home ownership. In many cases, newcomers convinced their siblings and high-school buddies to join them on the periphery of the city. They even had their own shopping mecca. Scottsdale Shopping Center, one of the first modern retail plazas in the city, was an anchor of the neighborhood.

An influx of new families helped spur construction of the new Wrightwood/Ashburn branch of the Chicago Public Library, which opened in 1997 at 8530 S. Kedzie. The opening of the CTA's Orange Line in the early 1990s gave the community the quick access to downtown it had long sought. This commuting convenience, along with the housing stock, should continue to make Ashburn an attractive place to live for decades to come.
