Chicago History Museum, Major Renovation and Property Development

Developed in partnership with the Chicago Park District and support of neighborhood groups, The Chicago History Museum’s Jaffee History Trail creates a new destination at Lincoln Park’s southwestern corner. 

The interpretive path through the park space around the Museum incorporates features such as a fire relic from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and the couch tomb, a reminder that the area was once a Chicago city cemetery.

This project also included the major renovation to the Museum’s underground storage facility, which is directly below the plaza and houses the Museum’s 23,000 linear feet of archives and manuscripts. Renovations upgraded the structural integrity of the space and modernized the interior and state of the art climate control system to assure the archives is preserved.
