Greater Chicago Historical Tour Guide
Long-time journalist D. Ray Wilson offers a guide to historical sites and museums in greater Chicagoland. He includes capsule histories of the sites themselves, from the well-known Water Tower Pumping Station to off-the-beaten track sites like Fort Nonsense. Additionally, this guide includes museums small and large, art galleries, and public sculptures. Readers can also find a short history of Chicago from 1831 through the time of writing, along with brief introductions to prominent local figures.
