Part of Chicago's History

The Gold Coast has centuries of noteworthy architecture to revel over when strolling down its main avenues and smaller residential streets. One famous spot is where 19th century businessman Potter Palmer, who was known for developing State Street in the 1880s, built an incredible 42-room castle in 1882 that took up the equivalent of an entire city block on what is now Lake Shore Drive. Although his mansion was demolished long ago, the land where it once is stood is where 1350-1360 Lake Shore Drive stands today.
