Hull House Map (Nationalities), 1895

One of the many projects of the Hull House Settlement was to conduct careful studies of its Near West Side neighborhood, which housed many of Chicago's most recent immigrants, most of whom came from central, southern, and eastern Europe. This map, which appeared in the volume Hull-House Maps and Papers, depicts nationalities of residents in the area bordered by Polk, Twelfth (now Roosevelt Road), Halsted, and Jefferson Streets.
