Buckingham Fountain

Set amid Grant Park along Lakeshore Drive, this majestic Versailles-inspired fountain was funded in 1927 by Kate Buckingham in memory of her late brother. One of the largest fountains in the world, its four seahorses represent the four states that border Lake Michigan: Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.
