AT NO COST TO YOU, GET FUNDING FOR Maxwell Street Foundation WHEN YOU: Buy a Home / Sell a Home / Lease Commercial Property

In 1994, individuals concerned about the continuance of the Maxwell Street Market and the preservation of its neighborhood organized the Maxwell Street Market Colloquium at the University of Illinois at Chicago. When the historic Market was relocated that year to Canal Street from the site it had occupied since 1912, these individuals publicly advocated alternatives to the removal of the remaining Maxwell Street residents, businesses, and buildings as the area was cleared for the University's South Campus expansion. The Maxwell Street Museum Project, a not-for-profit Illinois corporation, was organized by these individuals in 1996 to preserve physical remnants of the marketplace, and was reorganized in 1998 as the Maxwell Street Historic Preservation Coalition with 501(c)(3) status to sustain the built fabric of the street and support the preservation of its history.
