Chicago Park (formerly: Storms Station) is a high-end residential and unincorporated historic agricultural and wine-growing community in Nevada County, California. It is located along Highway 174, with its center at the intersection of Mt. Olive Road. The neighborhood gets its name from its founding residents, who came from Chicago to California in the late 1800s to grow wine, which was often shipped back to Illinois for consumption. As one of California's first wine-growing regions, Chicago park is about 9 miles southeast of Grass Valley and about 3 miles north of Colfax.
