Wolf Point, Chicago
Wolf Point is historically important in the development of early Chicago. This was the location of Chicago's first three taverns, its first hotel, Sauganash Hotel, its first ferry, its first drug store, its first church, and the first bridges across the Chicago River.
The Wolf Point is said to be named after a Native American Chief whose name meant to wolf in English, but other theories exist.
