2022 Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards for Restoration

The Grand Army of the Republic Rooms, completed in 1897 in Chicago’s Cultural Center (the city’s former main public library) have undergone a $15 million restoration to preserve and honor the original features designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Healy & Millet. The project, which spanned more than two years, was funded by a generous anonymous donor and led by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Harboe Architects and Berglund Construction.
