Completed the year before the World's Fair in 1892, the Women's Temple of the Women's Christian Temperance Union signaled the organization's stature in the city. Design by architect John Root, the building was envisioned by WCTU president Francis Elizabeth Willard. The building not only housed the WCTUs' offices, but also proclaimed their presence in the city.
