In 1837 Chicago was only a small trading post located at the mouth of the mouth of the Chicago River. During the next 20 years the population of Chicago would quadruple and amaze the rest of the world by being able to continually reinvent itself and eventually become one of the largest cities in the country.
These days, Chicago continues to grow and constantly reinvent itself. Chicago has become a flourishing center of commerce and trade, a global city, where people of every nationality come to pursue the American dream.
The first permanent resident of Chicago was a trader and a free black man who was apparently from Haiti, who arrived in what is currently known in Chicago in the late 1770's, named Jean Baptiste Point du Sable. The government of the United States constructed Fort Dearborn at what is currently known as the intersection of Wacker Drive and Michigan Avenue in 1795. There are even bronze markers in the pavement to establish this fact. In 1812, Native Indian burned fort to the ground, rebuilt and demolished again in 1857.
The year 1837 brought the incorporation of Chicago as a city. At that time Chicago was ideally located to benefit from the trading possibilities that were created by the westward expansion of the country. In 1848, a water link between the Mississippi River and the Great lakes by the completion of the Illinois and Michigan Canal. However, this canal was soon considered rendered obsolete because of the railroads. These days, 50% of the railroad freight in the US continues to pass through Chicago. In addition, the city has become the busiest aviation center in the country, as the result of Midway and O'Hare International airports.
The residents of the city had to do some rather amazing to keep up with Chicago as it grew. They raised a number of the streets between five and eight feet, during the 1850's, to install a sewer system. In addition, that also had to raise the buildings. However, the sidewalks, streets, and buildings were all made from wood, and the majority them burned to the ground in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The Chicago Fire Department training academy is situated on the location of the O'Leary property where it has been reported where the fire started. The Chicago Water Tower and Pumping Station at the current intersection of Chicago and Michigan Avenues are among one of the few buildings that survived the fire.
It didn't take long for Chicago to rebuild. Much of the debris was used to form the underpinnings of what is currently known as the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, and Grant Park by being dumped into Lake Michigan as landfill. In 1893, Chicago celebrated its recovery by hosting the World's Columbian Exposition. One of the Exposition buildings was rejuvenated and became the Museum of Science and Industry. Even the Great Depression didn't discourage Chicago. From 1933 through 1934, Chicago hosted the Century of Progress Exposition, on Northerly Island, which was equally successful.
During the 50 years after the Great Fire, immigrants flocked to Chicago to take jobs in the meat packing plants and factories. Many poor workers and their families found help in settlement houses operated by Jane Addams and her followers. Her Hull House Museum is currently located at 800 S. Halsted St.
Throughout the history of their city the residents of Chicago have demonstrated their ingenuity in matters both small and large. The ten story steel framed Home Insurance Building was constructed in 1834 to become the first skyscraper in the country located at the current intersection of Adams and LaSalle Streets. In 1931, the building was demolished.
In 1900, they reversed the flow of the Chicago River to make it flow towards the Mississippi River when waterborne illnesses threatened them, as the result of sewage that was flowing into Lake Michigan. The start of the Historic Route 66 begins at the current location of Adams Street at Grant Park in the front of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Chicago was also the birthplace of:
* The 1,450-foot Sears Tower, which was completed in 1974, and is the tallest building in North America and the third tallest building in the world.
* The first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction, which ushered in the Atomic Age, took place in 1942 at the University of Chicago. The location spot is marked by a Henry Moore sculpture located between 57th and 56th streets on Ellis Avenue.
* The refrigerated railroad car by Swift
* Mail-order retailing by Montgomery Ward and Sears
* The automobile radio by Motorola
