The memorial stands in Horner Park in Chicago, Illinois at the corner of Montrose Avenue and California Avenue. It is maintained by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency as a state historic site. The monument was designed by John Brcin in 1948.[1] It features reliefs representing Horner during his years as probate judge and as governor.
