The Evanston History Center’s 43rd Annual Mother’s Day House Walk


Join us in celebrating 43 years of Evanston history and architecture. The Evanston History Center (EHC) presents the Annual Mother’s Day House Walk on Sunday, May 13, 2018, rain or shine. Houses will be open from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. This year’s House Walk is generously supported by the event’s Premier Sponsor, Evanston Community Bank & Trust, a member of the Wintrust Family, and the event’s Silver Sponsor, American Vintage Home.

This House Walk will feature 6 historically and architecturally significant houses in southeast Evanston, the neighborhood surrounding the former home of the Dawes family and current headquarters of the Evanston History Center. Each house has a fascinating story to tell of architectural development, the neighborhood, and Evanston history. Visitors to the Dawes House will also be able to view the Evanston History Center’s new exhibit, “Listen Up! A History of Audio Technology from the Evanston History Center Collection.”
