Pulaski Road

"Pulaski Road is a major north-south street in the City of Chicago, at 4000 W., or exactly five miles west of State Street. It is named after American Revolutionary War hero Casimir Pulaski.

"Pulaski Road was originally known as 40th Avenue. In 1913, it was renamed for Peter Crawford, an early area landowner, in order to avoid duplication of the 40th Street name in the city.

"The name Crawford Avenue lasted until 1935 when, over local opposition and a legal battle all the way to the Illinois Supreme Court, the street was renamed for Pulaski.

"Pulaski Road still retains its former Crawford Avenue name in the north suburbs of Lincolnwood, Skokie, and Evanston. In Wilmette, Crawford becomes Hunter Road."
