Description

The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is located in the two surviving settlement house buildings not lost when the University of Illinois at Chicago campus was built in the 1960s. The museum honors social reformer Jane Addams, the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and her work to improve the lives of Chicago immigrants and transform policy on education, public health, labor practices, and immigrant rights. The surviving buildings are the Hull Home, a National Historic Landmark dating to 1889, and the Residents’ Dining Hall, an Arts and Crafts style building used to host events and visiting speakers.
