Event Series Event Series: House Tours

CLOSED for house tours today

November 23, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Dawes House will be CLOSED for tours today!
We apologize for any inconvenience.

House Tours include an introduction to the Dawes House, a guided tour of the first floor, and our second-floor exhibits.

Visitors have time to peruse exhibits at their leisure, revisit areas of the house of particular interest, and ask questions of the expert docents.

The cost is $10 per person. Evanston History Center members and children under 6 are free.

  • The first-floor tour includes six large rooms filled with the Dawes family collection of furnishings and artwork, just as they were during the 1920s.
  • The second floor includes a permanent exhibit, Milestones and Memories, that encompasses highlights of Evanston’s multi-faceted history and is populated with significant artifacts from the collection.
  • Specially-focused exhibits on timely issues and themes from the EHC collections, costume, artifact, and archival, are located in a second suite of rooms.
  • The first floor is wheelchair accessible.
  • The second floor is only accessible via the main stairway.

Reservations are not necessary. Please make sure there hasn't been a last-minute closure before visiting. Closures will be posted on our Calendar of Events. Payments are accepted at the door.

If you have any questions, please email Kris Hartzell at
