About this Activity
What is Chicago's most identifiable claim to fame? Lake Michigan? Hard breezes? It's gotta be the architecture. The prototype of the modern industrial metropolis arose from the charred landscape left by the Great Fire of 1871. Many of Chicago's surviving buildings are the forefathers of the great modern skyscrapers. On this walking tour, you will discover the historic beginnings of the Chicago School of Architecture, and the earliest skyscrapers built between the 1870's and the 1930's. The tour features the Chicago Board of Trade Building, The Auditorium Building, and the Rookery. Learn about these architects who made Chicago marvelous.
