The Marshall Field and Company Building is the “grande dame” of Chicago department store buildings, a Chicago School building finely designed and detailed in the Classical Revival style. It is significantly historical as the longtime headquarters of Marshall Field and Company, one of the nation’s most historically important retail enterprises, and one of the finest historic department stores in the nation. Built in stages over a generation, the building is the work of Chicago’s leading architects, Daniel H. Burnham. The building is noteworthy for its lavish interiors, including two atria decorated with stained glass and Tiffany mosaics, and the much-beloved walnut room. Designated on November 1, 2005 Richard M. Daley, Mayor Commission on Chicago Landmarks
 
Erected 2005 by Commission on Chicago Landmarks.
