Fort Sheridan; Ideal North Shore Neighborhood on the Lake
Historic Fort Sheridan is a residential community on the North Shore of Lake Michigan. It's an ideal location for families and couples looking to move out of the city, but not wanting to give up activities on the lake, great restaurants and bars, and needing public transportation to work downtown.
Encompassing both Highland Park and Highwood, it's nestled among the lakes and ravines, distinguishable from any other Chicago suburb. It's a sought after community to raise a family, or relax and enjoy the surroundings as an empty nester. Residences include new and historic single family homes, as well as townhomes, condos, and duplexes.
Fort Sheridan is ideal for homeowners seeking outdoor activities and enjoying nature. The community has its own beach access; popular hotspot for biking; trails for hiking and running, playgrounds, and forest preserves within a short walk.
Fort Sheridan was originally developed as a US Army installation in the late 1800s, consisting of ninety-four contributing historic buildings on 640 acres of prime Lake Michigan property. The area is designated a US historic landmark property.
