Location: NE corner Lake and LaSalle Streets
The Marine Bank Building stood on the northeast corner of Lake and LaSalle streets. Along with the other structures on Lake Street between LaSalle and Clark, it was lifted six feet in 1858-59 to accommodate the raising of Lake Street’s grade. Its president was the prominent attorney and philanthropist J. Young Scammon, in whose Marine Bank office the Chicago Historical Society (now the Chicago History Museum) was founded in 1856.
