Forgotten Chicago is an organization that seeks to discover and document little known elements of Chicago’s infrastructure, architecture, neighborhoods and general cityscape, whether existing or historical.[1]

The organization exposes many of these often overlooked elements of Chicago’s built environment to a wide audience to increase interest in their preservation.[2] In addition to conducting research and publishing articles on their website, Forgotten Chicago also leads neighborhood walking tours[3] and holds free presentations at area libraries.[4] Forgotten Chicago has received many accolades including being named one of Chicago Magazine's 171 best Chicago websites in February 2008[5] and being featured in the Chicago Tribune,[6] The Northwest Indiana Times,[7] Time Out Chicago,[8] and local radio.[9]

Their web presence underwent a major re-design in January 2009 with feature improvements, revised and updated content, and more ways for the public to get involved with the organization through Twitter and Facebook.
