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. 

Age 22

Statue of Liberty is dedicated.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places named Churchill, for example in Devon, Oxfordshire, Somerset, and Worcestershire. Most were probably originally named with a Celtic element crūg ‘hill’ (which early on was reinterpreted as Old English cyrice ‘church’), to which was added Old English hyll ‘hill’.
