North Chicago Township
CountryUnited States

North Chicago Township was a township in Cook County, Illinois that was part of the City of Chicago. It comprised that part of pre-1889 Chicago north and east of the Chicago River. When Lake View Township to its north was annexed to Chicago in 1889, it was maintained as a township and not incorporated into North Chicago Township, so the latter continued to be bound to the north by Fullerton Avenue.[1][2] Chicago residents voted to eliminate the townships in the city in 1902, including North Chicago Township;[3] nevertheless, they remain in use for the purposes of property assessment.[1]
