Chicago, Illinois: Sign: Geographic Center of Chicago

Marked by several signs since 1979, most of which have disappeared -- some say because of jealous rivalries from other claimed Chicago city centers. New sign was installed in 2016.
S. Honore St., Chicago, IL
Outside St. Andrew Lutheran Church. On the west side of S. Honore St. just north of its intersection with W. 37th St.
