45th Annual Mother's Day House "Walk-By"

Click here to purchase tickets online today, or click here to learn more.

The Evanston History Center announces that its 45th annual Mother’s Day House Walk will take place in 2020! But in order to be safe, things will be a bit different this year. This year’s House Walk will be “Walk-By.” EHC invites people to (safely) walk, ride, or drive in order to take part in this year’s event. We invite ticket holders to safely experience the House Walk-By beginning on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10, 2020, or on any day after.

In honor of the centennial of the passage of the nineteenth amendment, giving American women the right to vote, this year, EHC highlights the homes of Evanston women who fought for suffrage and those who served their community through elected office.

Your ticket purchase this year is especially important: the Walk is one of EHC’s most important fundraisers, supplying needed resources for EHC to operate throughout the year.
