Once The Tallest Building In America, Illinois’ Sears Tower Was A True Feat Of Engineering
Once upon a time, the tallest building in the country was right here in Illinois, specifically Chicago. Today, One World Trade Center in New York City has the distinction as the tallest skyscraper in the United States, but that accolade once belonged to the Sears Tower in Illinois. Now known as Willis Tower, the Sears Tower is an incredible feat of engineering, especially during the time it was built.
