The North Dearborn Association has a long and proud
history of beautification and neighborhood
preservation in Chicago’s Gold Coast community.
The organization was founded in 1954 for the purpose
of restoring North Dearborn Parkway to its
pre-World War II grandeur. Most widely known for its
annual Dearborn Garden Walk, the NDA is much more.
