History of The Magnificent Mile

This enviable district is located along North Michigan Avenue, and it boasts an abundance of history. The plans for this shopping epicenter were created in the early 1900’s, and in order to make this happen, the nearby shoreline had to be flattened to keep flooding at bay. Although the stock market crash in 1929 halted development, it was soon revitalized and made a great comeback. By the early 2000’s, the name “The Magnificent Mile” was coined and trademarked, and you can see how much the development has continued into current times. Whether you’re a native Chicagoan or have just moved to the large city, you will love all this district offers, and its history makes it even more exciting.
