Frances Willard House

1730 Chicago Ave., Evanston, IL 60201 Visit Map
(847) 328-7500

The historic home of one of the most prominent social reformers in the 19th century America. Willard rallied support for temperance as well as many important reform movements including woman’s suffrage, woman’s economic and religious rights, prison reforms, education and labor reforms. Established as a museum in 1900, there are textiles, family photographs, books, and Willard's bicycle--all which help us tell the story of this remarkable social reformer. The house is a National Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
