Tribune Tower Artifacts

Address: 435 N Michigan Ave.

The Tribune Tower, home to the Chicago Tribune until the building’s recent conversion to condos, was built in the 1920s by publisher "Colonel" Robert McCormick partly as a display of power and influence. Embedded in the tower’s base are stones and other artifacts from iconic buildings and places, all with labels chiseled into the façade. Look for pieces of the Alamo, the Taj Mahal and the Parthenon, to name a few.

As you explore Chicago during OHC, please wear a face covering, maintain at least six feet of distance from others and do not attempt to enter any buildings.
