What Makes Lincoln Square Unique?

  • Lincoln Square Mural - the Chicago Tribune calls it one of the city's most important outdoor murals. The 3000 square foot mural took two months to finish and was completed in September 1991. The mural captures a number of famous historic landmarks such as the Liebfrauen Church in Munich, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, a house in the Black Forest and Lake Constanze.
  • Giddings Square Fountain - this bronze tiered fountain is the center of Lincoln Square's Giddings Plaza. Its design was inspired by the motifs on the Louis Sullivan building at 4611 N. Lincoln, now home to the Museum of Decorative Arts.
  • Merz Apothecary - located in Chicago, is a historic German health care store that has been family owned and operated since it was opened by Peter Merz in 1875. Since its inception, it focuses heavily on herbal medicines and traditional formulas common in Europe.
