This year’s housewalk "A Stroll in the Glow" explores the elegant, tree-lined neighborhood of southeast Wilmette that includes the charming streets of Gregory, Laurel, Oakwood and Woodbine Avenues (hence the acronym the GLOW). All four homes on the stroll date from the neighborhood’s early development around 100 years ago as American residential architecture was breaking away from Victorian excesses to the simplified, Prairie and Craftsman styles. Housewalk highlights include stunning art glass windows and doors, beautiful fireplaces, original 1910s lighting fixtures, and exquisite woodwork. 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. The Spring Housewalk is held each year to support the work of the Wilmette Historical Museum in preserving our village’s past. Advance tickets receive a $10 discount and can be purchased by calling the Museum or on our website here.
