Chicago’s Belmont Cragin community area, located on the Northwest Side, is eight miles from the Loop. Belmont Cragin, originally known as Whiskey Point, was annexed by the city of Chicago as part of Jefferson Township in 1889. The area grew as an industrial and commercial community from the late 19th century until the closing of several factories and a retail decline in the mid-1990s. The area includes several smaller neighborhoods, including Belmont Central, Cragin, Hanson Park, Kelvyn Park, Hermosa, Galewood and Montclare.
