Chicago’s Historic Water Tower, made of Joliet Limestone blocks quarried in Illinois, was built in 1869 and used to control water surges in the area. It is best known for being one of the few buildings to survive the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and has become a symbol of Chicago and a memorial to the victims of the Great Chicago Fire.

(Location: 806 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611)
