Edison Park is a tree-lined neighborhood in Chicago’s northwest, between Harlem Avenue and Canfield Road, and Howard and Devon Avenues. Famous for its annual end of summer food festival, The Edison Park Fest weekend kicks off with a parade, sidewalk sales, entertainment and arts and crafts, and the well-loved Taste of Chicago. With a mix of homes from bungalows and apartments to four-squares and Dutch Colonials, Edison Park offers many styles from which to choose.
Known historically as Chicago’s first “electric suburb” in 1890 and named after Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor of the incandescent bulb, Edison Park was mainly farmland until World War II. Edison Park was also home to painter Adam Emory Albright and his artistic sons Ivan and Malvin Albright as well as sculptor Leonard Crunelle, who gained fame for his statues of Abraham Lincoln.Read More ▾
Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
