Developer offers up U.S. Steel site for Obama library
A new site is being offered as a possible home for Barack Obama’s presidential library.
It’s the site of the old U.S. Steel South Works.
The property’s developer is giving 32 acres to the University of Chicago – that’s plenty of land for a library.
President Obama got his political start in that neighborhood.
The south works property has been idle since 1992, though it hosted a big rock concert – the Dave Matthews Band caravan three years ago.
