Tour Evanston Women’s History with Summer 2019 Map – She Created!

The Frances Willard House Museum, in partnership with the Evanston Women’s History Project and Shorefront Legacy Center, announces the 2019 Tour Evanston Women’s History Map. The 2019 map addition will feature eight new women’s history sites (along with the original fifteen) around the theme She Created, with each site connected to an Evanston woman in the arts. 

Purchase a map and head out outside for self-guided walking, biking and driving tours, all the while learning a little bit about eight amazing Evanston women writers, artists, architects, and musicians.


Designed by local illustrator Caroline Brown, the map costs $5 and will be available for purchase beginning Sunday, May 26th (Memorial Day weekend) from 1-4 pm at the Frances Willard House and the Evanston History Center (EHC). It will be available throughout the summer when these locations are open (Willard House – Thursdays and Sundays 1-4 pm; EHC – Thursdays-Sundays 1-4 pm).
