Day 296: Harpo Studios

In the early 1900s, the Harpo building was Chicago’s Second Regiment Armory. After the Eastland steamer capsized in the Chicago River in 1915, the armory was used as a temporary morgue for victims of the disaster. Today, some say the Harpo building is haunted by the ghost of the “Gray Lady.”
