We are very happy to announce “Century Homes,” our 27th Annual Spring Housewalk. The event will take place on Sunday, May 18, 2014, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Mark your calendars and purchase tickets early!
“Century Homes” features four grand homes that are more than 100 years old. You’ll see the stunning interiors of some of the earliest residences in east Wilmette, including the Asahel Gage House. Each of the four houses represents a different architectural style popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Arts and Crafts, Classical Revival, Italianate, and Queen Anne.
Tickets start at $40. For more details and pricing information, visit our programs page.
