The Rookery Building in the heart of Chicago’s financial district stands testimony to the resilience and creative spirit of late-nineteenth century Chicago. The rebirth of the city in the wake of the Great Fire of 1871 gave rise to the multi-storied office building that would transform the landscape of America’s cities.
The Rookery is also home to the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, featuring a wonderful shop for unique architectural items and literature.
