Get ready to be amazed by the grandeur and beauty of the Baha’i House of Worship, one of only seven Baha’i temples in the world and the only one in North America. The oldest surviving and largest Baha’i Temple in the world features an auditorium with walls of lace-like ornamentation and 135-foot dome. The temple is also known for its exquisite gardens and fountains. Next, walk in the footsteps of a former U.S. Vice President as you explore the Charles Gates Dawes House, a three-and-a-half story mansion overlooking Lake Michigan. This stunning chateau is a National Historic Landmark and is home to the Evanston History Center. Tour the home’s original artifacts and rooms, which detail life at the turn of the 20th century. Another historic home, the Frances Willard House, pays homage to the American educator, temperance reformer, and women’s suffragist. Her influence was instrumental in the passage of the 18th and 19th Amendments to the United States Constitution. Her home is located in Downtown Evanston and a docent-led tour highlights her accomplishments as well as the place where her movement flourished. Following the tour, enjoy lunch in downtown Evanston.
