Have you ever wondered about the history of your house or neighborhood? One of the many reasons people visit the Museum is to take advantage of our Research Center which has real estate records and photos of many homes in Wilmette. If you stop by during regular museum hours, our staff would be happy to help with your house query. Like the museum, our Research Center is open to the public for free. We don’t have a file on every house, but over many years we’ve accumulated a vast amount of material that may help you discover your home's architect, who might have previously lived there, and how it may have looked in past years.
