We will see the Biograph Theater, where bank robber John Dillinger was killed in 1934 by federal agents. We will also see the amazing interior of the Elks National Monument. We will walk by many 19th-century mansions and townhouses, stopping briefly to look at some of them, so expect the walk to take about 3 hours.Directions: CTA
