The Barack Obama Foundation has chosen Jefferson Park near the University of Chicago as the location for Barack Obama’s Presidential Library. The South Chicago location beat out New York City and Honolulu as the place to store and share the record of the Obama Presidency. Jefferson Park was also the site for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition.
According to the Barack Obama Foundation the Jefferson Park site will bring jobs and opportunities to an area long-stressed by gang warfare and unemployment. The Obama Presidential Library will be completed in 2021.
