Docent-led walking tour with Evanston History Center

June 18 @ 11:00 AM

$15 – $20

 

The Evanston History Center offers lively docent-led walking tours of Evanston neighborhoods, downtown, and the lakefront. The tours provide fun and fascinating insights into the history of Evanston, its architecture, and the cultural landscape.

2022 brings three NEW tours exploring Evanston’s Prairie School architecture!

Evanston’s collection of noteworthy Prairie School houses exceeds the limits of a single walking tour, so we are offering three distinct tours in three areas on three different dates. Purchase the package of all three for a special price.

Location

Most tours, unless otherwise stated, meet at the Evanston History Center, 225 Greenwood Street, Evanston. Please be sure to confirm the location of the start of the tour.

Hours

Tours vary and are occasionally repeated.

Tours begin at 11:00 AM and last for 90 minutes.

Admission

The cost is $20 per person/$15 for members unless otherwise stated. Contactless payment is required when registering for a tour.

Prairie School package: $50, $40 for members.

Reservations and payments must be made in advance. RSVP to Kris Hartzell, or 847-475-3410.

There is a limit of 20 guests per tour. We do reserve the right to cancel due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.

Parking

Free street parking is available on Greenwood Street.
