The battle over alcohol was formative in the early years of our nation. Dry Evanston: The Untold Story, a new exhibit at the Evanston History Center in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the 18th (Prohibition) Amendment, reveals how Evanston took on the fight, from its founding in the 1850s through the 20th century. Featuring original photographs, artifacts, archival materials and costumes that tell the story, Dry Evanston: the Untold Story will open on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 with a 6:30 p.m. reception prior to the Evanston History Center (EHC) Annual Members Meeting. Lori Osborne, EHC historian and exhibit curator, will offer brief remarks and light refreshments will be served.
