"History Detectives" is designed to introduce the youngest members of our community in grades 4-8 to local history through a variety of fun Wilmette-based activities to complete at the museum, at home, or around town. Club members will earn certificates or prizes for activities completed. Click here for information on past meetings.
For our spring meeting, we’ll visit the Frances Willard House in Evanston (1730 Chicago Avenue). Willard, one of the most famous American woman of the late nineteenth century, lived by the motto, “Do Everything.” We’ll learn about the many reform movements in which she was involved, including temperance and women’s rights, and view artifacts from her home and office. (Please note: Admission to Frances Willard House is $5/child; $10/adult – paid on day of visit)
