Jean-Baptiste Pointe DuSable, despite renewed interest to his life, has not enjoyed full recognition as the first permanent non-Native American settler and founder of modern Chicago. DuSable Heritage Association has worked over the years with the Chicago Park District and the DuSable Park Coalition in planning the future DuSablePark near Navy Pier, where the Chicago River meets Lake Michigan, close to DuSable’s original home.
Today, we are working with Related Midwest to finally bring the Park to life! DuSable Park on the Horizon, 2020!!
