About Evanston History Center

The Evanston History Center covers the history of the city of Evanston—but with roots going back nearly 120 years, the Center almost deserves a historical society of its own. It's headquartered in the National Landmark home of Charles Gates Dawes, the Vice President under Calvin Coolidge. In addition to the physical building and the collection of art and artifacts, the Center also leads walking architecture tours, music performances, and ice cream socials.

  • Size: six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, two parlors, a library, a dining room, a billiard room, and a ballroom, though it doesn't have a virtual golf center
  • Eye Catcher: the house itself: a 3.5-story chateau that visitors can explore on docent-led tours every Thursday through Sunday
  • Permanent Mainstay: Milestones and Memories, a second-floor exhibit featuring such artifacts as a surgeon's case, and paintings from several centuries throughout the house
  • Don't Miss: live events, such as a lecture series on the role of WWI in the history of the city, holiday parties and ice cream socials, and walking tours exploring architecture, the lakefront, and women's history
