First settled by German immigrants in the late 18th century, Yorkville later became a hub for immigrants of Hungarian, Czech, and Irish descent as well. Subtle clues of this historic fabric remain in the built environment, but traces of Yorkville’s past as an ethnic enclave are most evident in local shops and restaurants. Engage all five senses, most importantly taste, as you sample sweet and savory specialties from Schaller & Weber and Glaser’s Bakeshop, among others, while we visit Old Yorkville on this neighborhood walking tour
