Tickets are now on sale for the Wilmette Historical Museum’s 31st annual Spring Housewalk, “Historic Homes Transformed,” to be held on Sunday, May 20, 2018, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. This year’s housewalk features four beautiful historic homes in east Wilmette, including one Local Landmark. Homeowners have embraced original features of each home while transforming the interior spaces to suit their individual tastes and lifestyles. The homes provide four great examples of ways to enjoy living in an older home in 2018. Housewalk highlights include beautiful original fireplaces, pristinely maintained custom wood paneling and ironwork from the 1920s, as well as dramatic, modern kitchens and rustic contemporary interiors with old barn wood beams and doors. Ticket-holders will tour inside a gracious home designed by Edwin Clark, architect for Plaza Del Lago’s Spanish-style complex and many of the Thorne Rooms at the Chicago Art Institute, a beautifully restored 1880s home with original barn, and two elegant homes from the early 1900s, one a Local Landmark.
