Named after an architectural legend
Hotel Zachary at Gallagher Way found its inspiration in Zachary Taylor Davis, one of Chicago’s most significant architects, and the visionary behind Wrigley Field. Considered to be the Frank Lloyd Wright of baseball architects, Davis looked beyond the conventional wisdom of the time and in 1914 laid out a bold, original vision of a ballpark that has still never been duplicated. Wrigley Field, once known as Weeghman Park, has become a “baseball cathedral” that, to this day, is still considered the most iconic ballpark in baseball — and one of the greatest venues in all of sports.
Davis was born in Aurora, Illinois, studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and, together with his wife Alma, raised their children in Chicago’s Kenwood neighborhood.
