Chicago Historic Ward Files


This page is host to a number of historical ward shapefiles for the City of Chicago. These should be compatible with ArcGIS, QGIS or other programs that use .shp file formats.  Some of these are produced at UIC, others are mirrored from the University of Chicago for consolidation and preservation purposes.  Links are included to recent ward maps from the City of Chicago data portal.
