The Ukrainian Village has been designated as a Chicago Landmark District neighborhood ... It's nestled into a thirty-two square block area of the city's West Town. While largely a residential area, and contains an excellent cross-section of residential building types that provides a visual history of immigration settlement on Chicago's Near West Side. One that tells the story of German, Polish, and, ultimately, Ukrainian immigrants who settled in the area throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s. Ukrainian Village retains much of the character of a European community. Tree lined streets, small bungalows, as well as red-brick two-and three-flats, are the predominant architectural styles ..

Nearly one out of every three of the buildings in the district was developed by the early influential Chicago real estate developer William D. Kerfoot. The first real estate developer to reestablish his business after the Great Fire in 1871, Kerfoot became the embodiment of the "I Will" spirit of Chicago. He reopened his office the day after the fire ended with a sign on his door reading: "W.D. Kerfoot. All gone but, wife, children and energy."

* By 1930, Saint Nicholas Cathedral was the center of the Ukrainian neighborhood south of Wicker Park ... In 1969 St. Nicholas parish switched from the traditional Julian calendar to the Gregorian, which sparked an angry protest among traditionalists in the congregation. A dissenting group of parishioners broke away and started their own church, Sts. Volodymyr and Olha Parish. During the first five years of its existence the parish conducted its service in St. Volodymyr Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The new parish can be credited with revitalizing Ukrainian Community life and stabilizing the Village at a time when many Ukrainians were moving to the suburbs.
