Lake Township, also known as the Town of Lake, was a 42-square-mile (109 km2) former civil township in Cook County, Illinois, which now forms the south-west portion of Chicago. It was bounded by present-day Pershing Road (3900 South) on the north, State Street (0 East/West) on the east, and the Chicago city boundaries on the south and west. It was annexed into the city of Chicago in 1889, and includes the Union Stock Yards and the Englewood neighborhood.
