Join us in celebrating 37 years of Evanston history and architecture. The Evanston History Center (EHC) presents the Annual Mother’s Day House Walk, Sunday, May 13, 2012. Houses will be open from 12:00p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
In the 37 years since its inception, EHC’s Mother’s Day House Walk has embodied the best of history and architecture. This year, EHC bring you six private homes in northwest Evanston. In addition to exploring the area and understanding its growth and development, visitors will discover historical styles and how they have been updated to reflect current lifestyles. Intriguing stories of the people who lived in the houses are highlighted. The work of prominent architects such as Dwight Perkins and Robert Seyfarth will be featured. The House Walk includes interior viewing of the houses. Support of the House Walk benefits EHC’s programs and preservation of Evanston history.
