Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps: A Deeper Dive SOLD OUT

Tuesday, March 12

Thank you for your interest in this event but it has sold out. Check out our other upcoming member events!

Join director of research and access Ellen Keith and reference librarian Lesley Martin in the Research Center, where we’ll use Sanborn Fire Insurance maps to take a virtual walk through the past. With maps that document each building, you can explore Comiskey Park in 1956, Wrigley Field in the1920s, Riverview Amusement Park in 1950, and both world’s fairs. With luck, maybe you’ll find we have a map that shows your own street!

FREE, but space is limited; RSVP required

Aerial view of the stock yards: General View of Chicago Stock Yards 1901, Chicago, Illinois.
