Recurring Event Event Series: House Tours

House Tour—starts at 1 pm or 2 pm

December 22, 2022 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

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.

Tours are only available at 1 pm and 2 pm today.

  • 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 recommended. Payments are accepted at the door.

For groups larger than 10, please call EHC to reserve your spot.
Note: Tours are designed to last approximately one hour. The house will close at 3 pm today.
