Evanston is one of the North Shore communities that adjoin Lake Michigan. In 1851 a group of Methodist business leaders formed Northwestern University on several hundred acres purchased from a local farmer. They hoped their university would attain high standards of intellectual excellence. These founders submitted a plan for a city named Evanston, after one of their leaders, John Evans. The request was granted in 1857. It is also known as “Heavenston” due to its strong Methodist influence of its founders. The city features works of many prominent architects, especially near the lakefront. For more information on the area, please visit The City of Evanston website here.
