Logan Square was chosen as a site to host the Illinois Centennial Monument in 1918. That monument was designed and built beginning in 1915 by the West Parks Commission and an endowment from the B.F. Ferguson Fund. Henry Bacon was chosen to design the monument, which was modeled on Greek-style columns built with the same proportions as the Doric columns in the Parthenon. Bacon also designed the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
