Frances Willard House
1730 Chicago Avenue, Evanston,
Virtual: The history and memory of Frances Willard celebrates the legacy of a proclaimed “self-made woman.” Willard’s legacy is preserved in the journals that she wrote from 1855-1896, but much of the analysis of her life examines the latter journals where she writes about her national and global projects. Fortunately researchers have access to a glimpse of her early life through the now digitized journals that Willard kept.
