The Barack Obama presidential library will undoubtedly be one of the most famous attractions on the South Side of Chicago, and rightfully so. Officially called The Obama Presidential Center, the campus will include a vegetable garden, winding landscapes, a sledding hill and quiet spaces to read and reflect.

According to Fox News, the campus will provide,“5,000 new jobs during construction and 2,500 permanent jobs once it opens. It also claims that in its first 10 years, the center is expected to have a total economic impact of $3.1 billion.”
