Little Village has been known by several names over the past 140 years, but its rich culture and history have never been forgotten. Situated on Chicago’s southwest side, Little Village has gone from real estate promoters Millard and Decker’s affluent “suburb” Lawndale to one of the largest Bohemian enclaves in the United States. This vibrant neighborhood is known today as the largest Mexican community in the state of Illinois. Little Village has almost always been a working-class immigrant neighborhood filled with hardworking men and women who want their piece of the American dream. From residents such as martyred Chicago mayor Anton Cermak to the typical immigrant family next door, these strong-willed people have made their mark on Chicago and the rest of the world.

Review:

Title: Berwyn author’s book released this month

Author: Nick Vogel

Publisher: mysuburbanlife.com

Date: 4/22/2010
A book by Berwyn resident Frank Magallon about Chicago’s Little Village was released April 19.
Titled “Chicago’s Little Village Lawndale-Crawford,” the book is a picture-based history of Little Village, the Chicago neighborhood just east of Cicero.
Formerly known as the Lawndale-Crawford neighborhood, Little Village’s history is intricately linked to Berwyn and Cicero.
“Many, many of the area residents are from there,” said Magallon. “From the past hundred years, both Bohemian-Czech (and) Polish, now Mexicans have all traveled west from that neighborhood (to) Berwyn.”
Magallon said the book is available at bookstores everywhere and online at www.arcadiapublishing.com.
