The Lakeview Historic District is a historic district on the north side of the city of Chicago, Illinois.

The district was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on September 15, 1977.[2] The district, which is in southeastern Lakeview Township about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) north of the Chicago Loop, is primarily in the Lake View community but also includes a small part of the Lincoln Park neighborhood to the south.[3] A boundary expansion on May 16, 1986 added a one-block section on the south side of Belmont Avenue, between Orchard and Halsted Streets.[1][4]

Land use in the historic district is primarily multi-family residential. Streets are laid out on a rectangular grid that is broken by the short jogs in some of the streets and crossed on the diagonal by Clark Street.[3]
