A Chicago landmark was renamed Friday in honor of the city's founding father.
The name honors Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, Chicago's founder and first permanent resident.
"Chicago would not be what it is today if it weren't for DuSable's decision to settle here at the site of this bridge. He is the founder of this city and his work jumpstarted a small trading post into a global metropolis," said Durbin.
The dedication ceremony took place on Pioneer Court, which is the site where Dusable established his first trading post.
