May 14th, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

$10 – $15

Explore Evanston history beyond downtown with local historian Janet Messenger. Join her on a walk around the city’s south by southwest side.

The “South by Southwest” walking tour is Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m.-noon. The cost is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Space is limited.  Reserve today

The walk will explore the following three neighborhoods:

The Dempster-Dodge intersection – for decades home to our largest for-profit employer.

The Florence-Crain area – once the city’s Polish neighborhood and home to Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church with its golden statue of the Virgin Mary.

Crown Park – originally called Boltwood Park. It occupied a fraction of today’s park and was anchored by Boltwood Field House, serving local residents with more immediate needs than ice skating rinks.
