The Sauganash neighborhood is named after Sauganash, a local Potawotomi leader in the 19th century. It is such a calm and quiet residential community, that many people have problems believing is still actually part of Chicago. The Potawatomi tribe used to make their home here, and the word Sauganash translates as “Englishman” because at the time their chieftain was half-European and half-Potawatomi for which the area was named. The first homes in this community were actually built in the 1920s. It almost immediately urbanized into a wealthy community.
Basically this is what makes this area so laid back. The local movers though are anything but laid back, Wolley Movers works very hard to move our customers!
The Crown Fountain in Millennium Park is the crowing glory for Sauganash. It comprises of two 50-foot glass block towers. Throughout the day its towers project facial images of Chicago citizens, bringing an illusion of water, a symbol of life, spouting from their mouths.
