Wrigley Field named top building in Illinois for bicentennial celebration


Illinois' top 200 countdown continues and this week Illinoisans got to choose their top buildings in the state.

Here's a look at the top 5:

Coming in at number 5 is the Robie House in Chicago's Hyde Park. It's designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Number 4 is the Willis Tower, also in Chicago. Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette is the third best building in Illinois.

The second-best building chosen is the Dana-Thomas House, also designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

The number one building in Illinois is Wrigley Field. Home of the Chicago Cubs since 1916, the stadium is known for its ivy-covered outfield walls, hand operated scoreboard and cozy neighborhood setting.

The next Illinois Top 200 category is 'historic sites' and some of those on the list might look familiar. Up for vote is the Reagan Boyhood Home, the John Deere Historic Site. Both of those are in Dixon. Black Hawk State Historic Site in Rock Island is also up to vote.

CLICK HERE to vote for your favorite historic site in Illinois until April 27.

The Illinois Top 200 project recognizes the Prairie State's treasures ahead of its bicentennial celebration.
