100 Years Magnificent: DuSable Bridge 100th Anniversary

When the DuSable Bridge opened on May 14, 1920, it transformed a single dirt-lane road known as Pine Street into The Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago that we know and love today. In fact, the bridge was built right by Chicago's first non-indigenous settlement by Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable, a French Haitian, and his wife, Kitiwaha, of the Potawatomi tribe.
