Owner description: This architecturally grand building is a haven for out-of-state Elks.
Reviewed May 11, 2013

While Chicago is known for its architecture and skyscrapers, this building is as impressive as many others a couple miles south. Now re-opened after a 3-yr renovation project, the memorial provides the public with ornate sculptures and detailed paintings. Originally as a memorial to veterans of WWI, they have small displays on other US military engagements as well. The self-guided tour provides information on the displays.
Free, took about 45 minutes to see and read everything.
While ideas of BPOE (Elks) are displayed - Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love, and Fidelity - they take a backseat to the artwork and PURPOSE of the memorial.
