Summary
"In 1836, only three years after Chicago was founded, Chicagoans set aside the first narrow shoreline as public ground and declared it "forever open, clear, and free." Chicago historian and author Dennis H. Cremin reveals that despite such intent, the transformation of Grant Park to the spectacular park it is more than 175 years later was a gradual process, at first fraught with a lack of funding and organization, and later challenged by erosion, the railroads, automobiles, and a continued battle between original intent and conceptions of progress"--Page 2 of jacket
