The history of Evanston is a colorful one that includes many stories for the making of a Hollywood movie. You may be able to take a tour though the past to the time when Capone was around doing his business. The city also survived a massive fire in the late 1800s. No one knows what started the fire or why it happened but when it did, and in the process, destroyed many parts of the city and left few buildings standing. Some say that it was arson or possibly lightning. Take time to learn about the history of this city, it truly is what makes this area so rich and full of depth. The parks in Evanston have been made so the whole family can enjoy them. James Park, for instance, handles up to 2,000 visitors in a day. With soccer fields, basketball courts, sledding hills, a senior center, and more, the family can make an afternoon of it.1
