Burnham House

Daniel Burnham and his wife, Margaret, once lived here, in a house on the corner of 43rd Street and Michigan Avenue on Chicago's South Side. Today the spot is commemorated with one of those Chicago Tribute Markers of Distinction. But the location of the marker is an ironic way to remember the architect responsible for many of Chicago's most famous buildings: It is installed halfway between a neighborhood pizza place and a vacant lot overgrown with weeds.
