Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow Competition.

Win a trip for 2 to Chicago.

The History

Chicago‚Äôs architectural skyline grew out of the after effects of the Great Chicago Fire that wiped the city, leaving a blank canvas to re-build upon. The most popular tale suggests that the fire was started by Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow who allegedly knocked over a lantern in a barn, causing the fire that burnt through the whole city, making way for new architectural developments that Chicago is famous for today.
