EWHP exhibit installed at Rest Cottage

Rest Cottage with Willard, Anna Gordon and Mary Thompson Hill Willard

The EWHP exhibit Lifting as We Climb: Evanston Women and the Creation of a Community is now installed at the Frances Willard House, 1730 Chicago Avenue, Evanston, Illinois (also known fondly as Rest Cottage). An exhibit opening will be held on Sunday, November 6th from 1-4 pm. Refreshments will be served. In addition to the exhibit, visitors can tour the home, catching a glimpse of 19th century Evanston and learning more about Willard’s amazing career as a world-renowned social reformer. Willard called Evanston “a paradise for women” and the Lifting as We Climb exhibit explains how this was so from the earliest days of the community up through today. The exhibit will be open when the Willard House is open for regular tours (the first and third Sundays of the month) through 2012. For more information, visit www.franceswillardhouse.org.
