The Baird & Warner Story


Constantly, relentlessly reinventing, and developing new solutions for our clients since 1855 and into the future. It is hard to believe that what we know today as a great metropolis was once a small city with endless potential. When Baird & Warner founder Lyman Baird chose this area as his new home, Chicago was just 20 years old and had 85,000 residents.

From surviving the Great Chicago Fire to leading the fight for fair housing, Baird & Warner's long history is closely tied to that of the entire Chicagoland area.
