History of the Maxwell Street Market and surrounding area followed by time to roam the market. Then to the Fire Academy where we learned the real cause of the Great Chicago Fire. Then a snack at either Jim's or Maxwell St hot dogs. A view of the beautiful Catholic Church and an end at Hull House with a tour of some of the most interesting items.
The 21st century Maxwell Street Market
