While he never resided in Chicago, he was recognized for his achievements and brought an aire of sophistication to the Gold Coast neighborhood. While many of Chicago’s wealthiest residents were living in the Prairie District, Potter Palmer, a wealthy businessman, purchased land further North. The land was mainly swamp following the Great Chicago Fire but with Potter’s many resources the land was filled in and created what is not Lake Shore Drive. With the opening of Lake Shore Drive in 1875 one of Chicago resident’s favorite pastime became a leisurely drive along the lake and the Gold Coast. This drew a lot of attention to the area and many wealthy individuals followed the path of Potter and the Archdiocese of Chicago and built lavish mansions along Lake Shore Drive. As the area became densely populated more economic use of the land was developed with close proximity city homes and high-rise buildings. Through the years following its creation the Gold Coast has been home to many influential individuals that have shaped the history of Chicago.
