THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first skyscraper?
This one may be debatable, but
we'll start of with a definition of a skyscraper:
A very tall building.
Generally it it accepted that a skyscraper is a building of great height,
constructed on a steel skeleton.
The Home Insurance Building which was built in 1885 in
Chicago, Illinois is considered to be the world's first skyscraper as it was the
first building entirely supported by a steel frame.
The Home Insurance Building was originally ten stories
measuring 138 feet and another two stories were added in 1890.
It was demolished in 1931.
