March 15, 1954 -- Chicago Sanitary District Announces New Headquarters

March 15, 1954 -- The Chicago Sanitary District announces that it will build a four-story office building on the site of the former Cyrus Hall McCormick mansion on the northeast corner of Rush and Erie Streets. The property, for which the district pays $212,000, is the site of an 1870's mansion that the "reaper king," Cyrus Hall McCormick built and which was later occupied by his son, Harold McCormick, who served as the head of International Harvester until his death.
