Hermosa is one of 77 officially designated Chicago community areas located on the northwest side of Chicago, Illinois. Originally called Kelvyn Grove, it was already called Hermosa, meaning "beautiful" in Spanish, when annexed to the city in 1889.

The Consulate-General of Honduras in Chicago is located at 4439 West Fullerton Avenue.[3]

The neighborhood's greatest claim to fame is as the site of the birthplace of Walt Disney, whose boyhood home is located at 2156 North Tripp Avenue[4]
