Recently I had the opportunity to photograph The Woman’s Club of Evanston Clubhouse, a stately building in Evanston, IL.
Designed at the turn of the last century by noted architect Ernest Mayo and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Woman’s Club of Evanston (WCE) has a rich history in Evanston dating back to the late 1800s. Founded in 1889, The Woman’s Club of Evanston has had a proud history of supporting organizations that make a difference in our community. The WCE is dedicated to community service, philanthropic work and friendship and boasts more than 350 members from the North Shore, Chicago and surrounding communities. The stately Clubhouse, built in 1912, has hosted hundreds of noteworthy events with style and gracious hospitality.
Recently completing a five year restoration project, the Clubhouse exudes warmth and timeless elegance. Its classic architecture includes a black and white marble entrance hall and double staircase leading to the dramatic Ballroom and second floor Sun Porch, the perfect place for dinner, dancing and presentations. On the first floor, the intimate Tea Room with sparkling chandeliers flows into the Music Room and first floor Sun Porch providing the ideal setting for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and receptions. Below are some of my favorite images of the stunning interior and exterior. For more information about The Woman’s Club of Evanston and to book your next event please visit their website.
