The people of the Miami, Ottawa and Winnebago tribes once used this location as camping areas. The first European settler to the area was Conrad Sulzer of Switzerland, who arrived in 1837. Hotel Lake View, built in 1853, was one of the first permanent structures in the settlement. Many early settlers were farming families from Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg. During the Mid-1800s, deadly cholera outbreaks in Chicago drove people to seek refuge in Lakeview.

The ‘City of Lake View’ was incorporated in 1857. Lakeview was home to Camp Fry, established in 1864, during the Civil War. The camp served as a training facility for the 132nd and 134th Illinois infantry volunteers. The camp later served as a prison for Confederate soldiers. Though the community built a town hall in 1872, Lakeview was quickly absorbed into Chicago in 1889. With continued growth, subdivisions and new residential areas sprang up, bringing high-rise, mid-rise and low-rise buildings that shaped the urban landscape.

Notable historic residents of Lakeview include silent film star Charlie Chaplin, social reformer Lucy Flower, and famous inventor Buckminster Fuller.
