Photo Description

Daniel Burnham's Chicago plan of 1909 included large piers on Lake Michigan; the Navy Pier was the only that was built. Set on 20,000 wooden piles, it was a successful freight and passenger terminal until the Great Depression, when shipping traffic decreased.

The pier was used as a navy training center during World War II and as the University of Illinois's Chicago campus from 1946-1965. In 1976, the ballroom was restored and the pier was again used for civic and cultural events. In 1989, the city and state financed further renovations, including provision of space for conferences and expositions, museums, shops, restaurants, and entertainment and recreational facilities.
