Chicago Announced as Home of Obama Presidential Library Center

Obamas announce Sweet Home Chicago for presidential library center

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle on Tuesday said they wanted to locate their Obama library and museum in Chicago – with an announcement on their foundation website declaring “Sweet Home Chicago.”

While the South Side of Chicago gets a massive Obama complex associated with the University of Chicago, the first couple made a somewhat split decision, giving something to all four finalists – with the lion’s share to Chicago.

“As a future neighbor and collaborator on the Center, the University of Chicago has pledged to make resources and infrastructure available to the Foundation in the near term for its planning and development work,” the foundation said in a statement.
