Dunning, a residential community situated on Chicago's Far Northwest side, is characterized by frame houses, Chicago bungalows and English Tudors which line the side streets. In the early 20th century a developer named Schorsch built the graceful English Tudor styles with their stylized roofs along Oak Park Avenue and called the area Schorsch Village. It remains one of the jewels of the community.

Dunning is also known for two of Chicago’s best-represented ethnic groups: Polish and Italian, with each situated along the area’s main commercial avenues, Belmont and Harlem, respectively.

Wilbur Wright College, a sprawling, modern campus that is a cultural anchor of Dunning draws 12,000 students to the area, which brings a huge economic impact to the community. Wright is also a major employer offering programs for the entire family.

The Chicago-Read Mental Health Center, a facility that used to be called Dunning in pre-Civil War times and the source of the neighborhood’s name today, is another large employer.
