      Description

      Mount Greenwood Park takes its name from the surrounding community In 1879 George Waite obtained a state charter to develop a large cemetery on a low ridge west of 111th Street The ridge covered with oaks hickory aspen and other trees inspired the moniker Mount Greenwood As a steady stream of visitors came to the beautiful cemetery inns restaurants and shops soon opened nearby forming the basis for the new Mount Greenwood community Incorporated as a village in 1907 Mount Greenwood was annexed to Chicago twenty years later The neighborhood had few modern services until 1936 when the Federal Works Progress Administration installed sewers and street lights and paved the streets With these improvements Mount Greenwood s population soared nearly tripling between 1940 and 1950
