The Adventurers Exhibit Grand Opening

Thanks to all our dedicated volunteer researchers and visitors who made the opening of our new exhibit: The Adventurers:  Winnetka’s Untold Tales of Travel, 1899-1927.

The exhibit features five enterprising expeditions of Winnetkans motivated by humanitarian needs, business interests, artistic inspiration, and intellectual curiosity.  Taken in the first quarter of the 20th century, these journeys were unique in an America where most people lived and died within 20 miles of where they were born.  Come see the objects, photos, and costumes that tell their stories through June 2015.
