Shortly after the Civil War, a young Chicago created the park and boulevard system, giving form and character to a flat landscape and encouraging development to the city’s edge. Picturesque lagoons and carriage drives would evolve into a landscape that reflects our home on the Prairie, with art that reminds us of our roots.
