Once a year the five Century of Progress landmark homes are open for tours. The date for 2019 is Saturday, September 28; this one day is the only date this year that these private homes are open to the public, therefore tickets sell out almost immediately after the offer goes live. We have partnered with Design Evanston in a rare opportunity to reserve in advance a block of tickets for our members.

EHC will provide chartered bus transportation to and from the Indiana Dunes National Park. The bus will depart at 12:30 pm from the Dawes House and return to Evanston about 6:30 pm.  The cost of the travel tour package is $125, which includes bus travel, tour ticket, and a box lunch. A presentation on the history of the Dunes, the Century of Progress, and the houses are also included.

*Unfortunately, this tour is not fully accessible: it involves stairs and extended walking and standing.
