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
The Chicago Fire Academy (where the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 began)
Jim’s Red Hots (price of food not included)
St. Francis of Assisi Church/Our Lady of Angels
Jane Addams Hull House Museum
This tour begins outside the UIC/Halsted Blue Line “El” Station and ends at the Hull House Museum. It covers approximately two miles at a leisurely pace.
Please note that tour guide gratuity is not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
