The Zephyr Chicago has been a part of the National Register of Historic Places since 2002. One of the 55 historic structures included in Chicago’s Motor Row, this venue has previously been the site of a bustling motor vehicle marketplace. The Haynes-Apperson Company sold one of the country’s first automobile models right on the property. Later on, Lincoln took up residence, the sole manufacturer of the Zephyr car. Today, this well maintained and rehabilitated building features interior space that is heavily influenced by its American past, though now with a contemporary twist.
