About Chicago 

On August 12, 1833, the Town of Chicago was incorporated with a population of 350, and later became the City of Chicago on March 4, 1837 with a population of over 4,000. It is now known as the third most populous city in the United States with nearly 3 million people. Chicago would go on to become the transportation hub of the United States with its road, rail, water and later air connections.


Chicago is known for its various milestones over the decades. The Great Chicago Fire occurred in 1871 destroying a third of the city. It killed 300 people, destroyed 18,000 buildings, and hundreds of thousands were left homeless. The Chicago Water Tower is the only building to remain after the fire. The Sears Tower is still known as the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere after its 1974 completion. Chicago also houses two major international airports: O'Hare International (the world's second busiest in terms of passengers) and Chicago Midway International Airport.
