The Spotted Stone, Quarried in Chicago

The Spotted Stone, Quarried in Chicago
Thursday, March 13, 12 pm- 1 pm

Nate Lielasus, AIA (Northworks Architects and Planners, LLC) will give a presentation outlining his research on the Spotted Stone of Chicago. Spotted Stone is a bituminous limestone which was quarried within the current city limits of Chicago and used for several significant buildings in the region. It differs from Joliet-Lemont limestone, which was known as “Athens Marble” and used in such structures as the old Chicago Water Tower, and Bedford limestone, quarried in Indiana and used extensively in Chicago.

Though largely unknown today, Spotted Stone was one of the few (if not the only) stone quarried within Chicago and used for facing and trim on buildings and so holds a special place in the history of construction in Chicago.

Bring your lunch; beverages provided.

This event is sponsored by Historic Resources KC.
