State Line

The Illinois-Indiana State Line Marker is the oldest structure in Chicago and is located in the East Side neighborhood of Chicago. Made of sandstone blocks, it was built in 1838 to mark the determination of the states' boundaries. According to a plaque on the monument, it was relocated 191.09 feet north of its original location.

In the background of these photos, on the Indiana side of the monument, is the State Line Generating Plant.
