Return to "Chicago in the Middle Ground"

The Kinzie house, built by Jean Baptise Point DuSable in the 1780s. John Kinzie moved here in 1804, and this house served as the base for his far-flung trading operations. Kinzie lived among the Potawatomi for long stretches, primarily in what is now Michigan. His wife, Eleanor, grew up among the Seneca as a captive.
