This year’s housewalk on Sunday, May 15th explores the curving streets of Wilmette’s Indian Hill Estates, a park-like residential neighborhood laid out 90 years ago by architect Philip Maher. The tour highlights five 1920s and ‘30s homes designed by five different Chicago architects. During this era, architectural revival styles such as Tudor and Colonial were popular. Among the five houses on the tour are the home of the lawyer who spearheaded the development and two sets of “sister” houses. Guides will be on hand to enhance the interior tours with details about the history and beautiful, architectural elements that give each home its unique character. Only the first floors will be shown, making this year’s tour easily accessible to all. The Spring Housewalk is held each year to support the work of the Wilmette Historical Museum in preserving our village’s past. Tickets purchased in advance receive a discount and can be purchased here.
