The Lakeview Chamber of Commerce has recently launched a historical walking tour exhibition for residents who are interested in learning more about the North Side neighborhood’s background. The route features ten kiosks that contain a historic photo as well as an excerpt from the book Lake View, by local historian and journalist Matthew Nickerson. The two mile tour starts at 3550 N Lincoln Ave, heads down to Southport and Lincoln and then continues north where it ends at Blaine Elementary School. Some of the spots the tour highlights are Dinkel’s Bakery, Paulina Meat Market, Southport Lanes and St. Alphonsus Catholic Church.
