The Junior League of Chicago is located in the Gold Coast neighborhood, one of Chicago’s most treasured residential areas with its quiet, tree-lined streets, stately homes and connections to the city’s past. From its earliest days, the Gold Coast neighborhood has been home to many important Chicago families, people who have contributed substantially to the social, cultural and economic history of the city.
Today’s owners and residents appreciate this legacy and strive to preserve and enhance the quality of life and the beauty of the area, including the members of the Junior League of Chicago. To learn more about the neighborhood, visit the Gold Coast Neighbors Association website.
