Andersonville is a neighborhood to the west of Edgewater. Once a sleepy little village made up primarily of Swedish immigrants, the community is particularly known for its diversity, including a continued Swedish cultural presence led by the Swedish American Museum and other Swedish businesses. Swedish businesses include the bar Simon's Tavern, which serves the Swedish wine drink as glögg, and Svea restaurant. At one time there were more Swedes in Chicago than any city outside of Stockholm. Many of Andersonville's Swedes were carpenters, contractors and architects, and played a significant role in building the city.
