Jane Addams Hull-House Museum

-The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum was Chicago's first social settlement, a place where immigrants of diverse communities congregated to learn, eat, debate, and help each other establish roots in their new county. The museum consists of two of the settlement's original 13 buildings, the Hull-Home and the Residents' Dining Hall. Each space was used for a plethora of purposes over the years, from a nursery school and a library to a salon. Hull-House was opened in 1889 by Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr as a place to showcase art and literary education to their neighbors. The place quickly began evolving to meet the needs and wants of the immigrant locals, offering classes to help them become better settled in their community. Eventually, Hull-House became a cultural hub and a place where immigrants could find companionship and support with one another. The Hull-House Museum today serves as a memorial to Nobel Peach Prize-winning Addams and her colleagues who helped improve the lives of their immigrant neighbors. The Museum preserves the original Hull-House site for the continuation of the historic settlement house vision, combining research, education, and social engagement.
