Built in 1927, we treasure the historical structure that provides a home to the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center.  The 6-floor building was designed by architect Paul Gerhardt, son-in-law of the Chicago Alderman.  He also was the architect of Cook County Hospital, Lane Technical High School, Von Steuben High School, and the L&H Company Building. Originally built for the Three Links Association, a jolly fellows club, 4740 N. Western Avenue became a home for German Chicago in 1967.
