A community of about 550 residences on the far Northwest side of the city of Chicago is often referred to as "Chicago's Finest Community." It is one of the oldest neighborhoods on the Northwest side, and is at the southern part of the official Chicago neighborhood's area of Forest Glen, which also contains Edgebrook and Sauganash. The first European American to settle Forest Glen was Civil War hero Captain William Hazelton of the 1st Cavalry Division. Captain Hazelton built a fine home in Forest Glen which still stands, and started a Sunday School that evolved into the First Congregational Church of Forest Glen. Hazelton also built the Glen's first barn at what is now Lawler and Elston.
The Forest Glen neighborhood is bordered by the Chicago River to the north, Foster Avenue to the south, Cicero Avenue to the east and Metra Milwaukee District North line to the west. Forest Glen shares its zip code (60630) with Jefferson Park.
