Try this website, lib.niu.edu From the book: Suburban/Rural Conflicts in Late 19th Century Chicago: Political, Religious and Social Controversies on the North Shore by Mark A Zaltman: When in the 1830's and the 1840's, the first serious settlement of the Rogers Park/West Ridge area began, Ridge Avenue and Greenbay Road,later Clark Street, were the important highways for the first settlers. Ridge Avenue was originally an Indian trail along the ancient shore line of Lake Michigan described earlier. It became a stagecoach route leading into Chicago along which sprouted inns and taverns serving both the travellers and local residents.
