From Settlement to Suburb

First Floor

On the first floor is this exhibit about the people who settled Gross Point and Wilmette in the 19th century.

Among the rare artifacts on display are the medicine bag (complete with vials!) of the Village's first doctor, Byron Stolp, the surveyor's compass used to lay out Wilmette's first streets, and a phrase-book that Gross Point's German immigrants used to help them make their way across America.
