Elks National Memorial

A monument in the truest sense, the Elks National Memorial was built in 1926 to honor Americans whose profound sacrifices for the nation can never be recognized by mere words. With its massive dome, heroic sculptures and intricately detailed friezes, the Memorial is a distinctively American interpretation of classical greatness.

The Elks National Memorial is located at 2750 N. Lakeview Avenue, at the intersection of Sheridan Road and Diversey Parkway in Chicago’s idyllic Lincoln Park neighborhood. The Memorial is open from noon to 4PM, Monday through Saturday from April 15 through November 15.

Admission is free. Call 773-755-4876 or email us (memorial@elks.org) for more information.
