    1867 · The Chicago Water Tower

    Age 3

    The Chicago water tower was built out of Lemont limestone by William W. Boyington and was used for firefighting and also drawing clean water from Lake Michigan. The tower gained prominence after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Some believe that the tower was the only building to survive the Great Chicago Fire, but a few other buildings survived alongside the tower. The tower has become a symbol of old Chicago and how the city recovered from the fire. The tower has undergone only two renovations since 1913.
