This yellow brick road won’t lead you to the Wizard of Oz but it does celebrate it! In Chicago at Humboldt Boulevard and Wabansia Avenue you’ll find a yellow brick road. It was put there to honor former Humboldt Park resident, L. Frank Baum, the author of the 1899 novel, The Wizard of Oz. The road wraps around where the famed author’s home once stood. Grab your ruby red slippers and your little dog too when you take a trip down The Yellow Brick Road!
