The Wilmette Historical Museum is offering a free stroller tour from 10-11:30 a.m. Sept. 10. The tour will give families with younger children the opportunity to learn about one of Wilmette’s historic neighborhoods, the Ouilmette North Historic District, designated in 2005 by the National Register of Historic Places.
The tour will specifically feature Elmwood and Forest avenues and will cover the history of the neighborhood as well as several houses of historical and architectural significance. Goodie bags with crayons and a coloring book of Wilmette landmarks will be provided for young children, and participants are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch as the tour will finish at a local park with refreshments.
Reservations are required by phoning the Wilmette Historical Museum at (847) 853-7666. The meeting location will be given upon registration.
