American Neoclassical Limestone Architectural Chicago Riverwalk Obelisk

DETAILS
Bennett is best known for his work with Daniel Burnham on the 1909 Plan of Chicago. This Indiana limestone obelisk is from that project and was salvaged during a recent construction project along the Michigan Avenue Bridge that spans the Chicago River along Wacker Drive downtown. A similar obelisk is shown in the last photo, however this obelisk does not include the bronze lights of the original design.
