National Skyscraper Day

Skyscrapers Day is celebrated every year on September 3, on the birth anniversary of Louis H. Sullivan, often called the ‘Father of Modern Skyscrapers.’ The term “skyscraper” originated in the United States in the late 1880s. Historically this was the time when there was a building boom in New York and Chicago.
