To mark Evanston’s 150th anniversary, the Evanston History Center is offering a capsule summary of the town’s past in a guided tour of the center’s permanent “Milestones and Memories” exhibit.
The 30-minute “Evanston History 101” will be offered every month this year, with the first session at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26.
If you’ve ever wondered how Evanston got its name, want to know more about the city’s founders or want to take a closer look at dramatic changes the community has cone through since the 1960s, the tour can offer answers.
The event costs $10 per person and includes an optional docent-led tour of the Dawes House afterward. The session is appropriate for ages 10+.
For reservations, call (847) 475-3410 or emailing Lori Osborne, EHC archivist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Evanston History Center is located at 225 Greenwood St.
