Each year, Preservation Chicago presents a list of the “most endangered” buildings, called the Chicago 7. Join us as we visit many of them to hear about their history, architecture and value to the city’s built environment. The tour is complementary to the Preservation Chicago announcement of its 2020 list of endangered buildings, announced in February at the CAC. The Endangered Buildings tour is developed in partnership with Preservation Chicago, a nonprofit organization committed to strengthening the vibrancy of the city’s economy and quality of life by championing its historic built environment. Visit to learn more and view past Chicago 7 lists.
