Zepf’s Hall

For several years prior to Preservation Chicago’s founding in 2001, its members had sought landmark status for Zepf’s Hall, located at Lake and Des Plaines, the only extant building left from the infamous Haymarket Riot of 1886. More than 10 years have past since that recommendation was made and the building still remains unlandmarked.  Clearly, once the West Loop office boom picks up Zepf’s Hall will again be ripe for demolition.

Update: Zepf’s Hall is currently occupied.
