Trip 80: Northwestern University Settlement House

On Thanksgiving Eve I needed to run out and pick-up a ham for Thanksgiving dinner with our Chicago friends. On the way I swung by the Northwestern University Settlement House.

I think the building was probably landmarked more for its historical significance than for its architecture. The organization was one of the pioneers in developing programs to assist the urban poor. The group originally targeted Polish immigrants, but the neighborhood has become much more diverse over time.
