Native Americans on the North Shore

Ongoing
First Floor

Before 19th century treaties forced them to move, there were Native American communities in the Wilmette area for more than 10,000 years. On display are examples of their finely crafted stone tools and ceramic objects, including the haunting "effigy head," one of the oldest and most famous artifacts in our collection.

Don't miss a chance to see locally made objects that are thousands of years old!
