Jane Addams at the Hull House

Saturday, November 9, 2019

In 1889 Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams co-founded the world famous Hull House, the social settlement located on Chicago’s Near West Side. Social settlements began in 1880s London as a response to urbanization, immigration, and industrialization problems. These settlement houses usually attracted educated, middle-and-upper class men and women to “settle” into poor, urban neighborhoods. History presenter Helen Lewis who portrays Jane Addams for the Great Plains Chautauqua Society, will give a program on Jane Addams and the Hull House in full period costume in the Muscatine Art Center’s Music Room. This program is free and open to the public.
