Destination of The Month

Jane Addams Hull House on the University of Illinois campus
Jane Addams and her longtime female companions served immigrants from this settlement house on the near west side at the turn of the 20th century. The Hull House Museum today embraces a lesbian interpretation of Addams' romantic friendships with women and how those relationships helped sustain generations of newcomers to the city.
