The current Evanston was part of a large area called the Gross Point Territory in the 1830s. It was in 1836 that non-Indian Americans first settled in, and in 1850 they were called Ridgeville. In 1851, a group of Methodists established Northwestern University and selected the area as a new base. In 1854, the founders of Northwestern University submitted to county judges a plan for a city called Evanston, on behalf of one of their leaders, John Evans. In 1857, this request was approved.
Evanston was officially incorporated as a town on December 29, 1863, but declined the town system in 1869 to become a city, even though the Illinois State Council passed a bill to convert the town into a city. After the Civil War, it expanded its area by merging villages in North Evanston. Finally, in the early 1892, following the annexation of South Evanston Village, the city was chosen to form the city by a vote of voters.
The area of the city in 1892 was almost the same as the one that exists today. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, there were unincorporated and disputed regions called Norman Land on the Lake Michigan coast between Evanston and the suburbs of Wilmet. The dispute ended with Wilmet's advantage and the region was incorporated into Wilmet's village. Actor Charlton Heston was born in Normandu Land, and his autobiography "At the Stadium" describes the location. However, Heston wrote that the birthplace of Norman Land became a part of Evanston.
In 1939, the final of the first NCAA men's basketball championship was held at Patten Gymnasium at Northwestern University.
After World War II, it developed into a high-class residential area where people can commute to Chicago. Because the train called 'L' runs to the center of Chicago, and the town spreads from Lake Michigan, the number of wealthy people also increases because they can drive to work on an expressway along Lake Shore.
In August 1954, the second World Church Council Meeting was held in Evanston, and it is the only Council meeting held in the United States of America. President Dwight D. Eisenhower met his delegation and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Doug Hammarshold, and made an important speech titled "The Tools of Faith."
In the 1960s, Northwestern University reclaimed the shore of the lake by 74 acres (300,000 meters2), changing the city's boundaries.
Today, the Evanston City has the headquarters of the Alpha Phi, the International Rotary Club, the National College of Technology, the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Friendship Society, the Sigma Key Friendship Society, and the Christian Women's Temperance Association, which are educational institutions such as Northwestern University, and the International Friendship Association of Female Students.
Evanston is the birthplace of Tinkhartouy (a toy that can be enjoyed in combination), and a local legend says that a pharmacist in Evanston had invented ice cream Sunday, which has been disputed by Isaka, New York and Tu Rivers, Wisconsin.
Between 1858 and 1972, Evanston was prohibited from selling dry drinks or commercial offering, and in 1972 the City Administration Committee voted to allow restaurants and hotels to provide alcoholic beverages in their facilities only. In addition, in 1984, the City Government Committee approved the retail of alcoholic beverages in the city.
Evanston is located at latitude 42 degrees 2 minutes 47 seconds north and longitude 87 degrees 41 minutes 41 seconds west and latitude 42.04639 degrees north and longitude 87.69472 degrees west and 42.04639 degrees; -87.69472 (42.046380, -87.694608), with an altitude of 600 feet (180 meters). According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 7.8 square miles (20.1 km2), of which land is 7.8 square miles (20.0 km2), water surface is 0.04 square miles (0.1 km 2), and water surface is 0.26%.
In August 2004, there was some confusion about the size of Evanston. Until then, the area of the city was often set at 8.4 square miles, but it turned out to be a mistake. The 7.8 square miles are more accurate than the United States Census.

Politics and policies
The Evanston Municipal Government adopts a municipal committee and a manager system, and the city is divided into nine electoral districts, each of which serves as a member of the City Council, or a member of the City Council. The current mayor is Elizabeth Tisdale, the successor to long-term Laurean H. Morton.
In April 2009, a mayoral election was held and the voter turnout was low, but Elizabeth Tisdale became the mayor after winning against the other three candidates.
Evanston has a history of supporting the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) nominee in every level of government. In the 2004 presidential election, Democratic Party candidate John Kerry won 82%. Rival Republican George W. Bush was only 17%.
In the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama won about 87%.
- In the early days of the establishment of Evanston, the city was called "Heaven" because the Methodist had a strong influence and tried to impose its strict morality.
- In the early 20th century, Evanston was called the "city of church."
- In 1920, there were various works of outstanding architects and many famous residences, especially near the lakeside, so the town was nicknamed 'the city of houses.' This fact is often advertised by local real estate agents. This nickname has been given to the address at the local Kai Varnish Club in 1924.
- Since the latter half of the twentieth century, Evanston had an innovative policy, so he was sometimes called the People's Republic of Evanston (or ironically) with some humor.
Most of Evanston City (and a part of Skokie Village) is in Evanston Township High School District 202. The school district has one high school called Evanston Township High School, and the number of students is over 3,000 from the ninth to the twelfth. The high school's mascot is a wild kit (a small version of the Wild Cats at the University of North Western), and the school colors are orange and blue. The biggest rival is Winetoca's New Toria High School.
Evanston Scokey Community Integrated Education School District 65 covers the entire city of Evanston and the Scoquay part, and is in charge of primary education from pre-kindergarten through to eighth grade. The school district has ten elementary schools (up to fifth grade), three junior high schools (up to sixth grade and eighth grade), two magnet schools (up to eighth grade), and three special schools or centers. The number of children in the area was 6,622 as of 2004. The Sukhoi area, which is operated by the Evanston School District, is sometimes called Skevanston. In 2007, at the Illinois State Standard Achievement Test, Willard Elementary School in Evanston was ranked 8th in the state.
private and parish schools
In addition to public schools in Evanston, you can choose a variety of educational opportunities. The Roismore School is a day school that is a preparatory school for independent co-education colleges, and it provides general education for children from pre-kindergarten through to 12th grade. Since St. George's High School was closed in 1969, there have been no Catholic high schools in Evanston, but many of the students have attended Catholic high schools in other areas, such as the co-education Loyola Academy in Wilmet, the Notre Dame High School in Niles, the St. Scholastica Academy in Chicago, and the Regina Dominican High School in Wilmet. There are nine private elementary and secondary schools in and around Evanston City.
The growth of Evanston City was largely due to the fact that the city could be moved by rail from Chicago. The founders of the University of North Western have determined the location of the university here since the Chicago and Milwaukee Railroad was on track. The Chicago and Milwaukee Railroad started making stops in Evanston City in 1855. Later, Evanston experienced rapid growth as a suburban residential area developed under the influence of the first streetcar. The North Shore Line was the origin of the nickname of the area from Church Street in Evanston to Warkegan.
The convenience of transportation makes Evanston attractive even today. The Purple Line, a part of the Chicago L network of the Chicago Transportation Bureau, runs through Evanston. At Howard Station in Chicago, it starts at and goes north, stops at South Boulevard, Main, Dempster, Davis, Foster, Noyes and Central, and Wilmet's Linden is the terminal station. The Union Pacific/North Line of Metra also runs through Evanston, and there are stops on Main Street, Davis Street and Central Street, and the first two stations approach Purple Line stations. The Yellow Line of the Chicago Transportation Bureau also runs in the city, but there are no stops. Evanston also has a non-profit car-sharing system, I-GO.
There are six bus routes of the Chicago Transportation Bureau and four Pace bus routes in Evanston.
Evanston is an important shopping district in the north of Chicago and on the North Side, where one of the Marshall Field's early stores and a suburban shop in Sears once stood, and there are many commercial centers in the city. The main ones are as follows.
- Central Street - Around Metra Station and L System Station on Davis Street. Adjacent to Northwestern University. There are more than 300 companies, high rise office buildings and residential buildings, three traditional low-rise shopping districts, 18-screen movie theaters, and more than 85 restaurants.
- Central Street - It is the most active mass in the neighborhood of Metra Station on Central Street, a shopping district connected along the north side of a group of main roads running east-west through the city, and is characterized by specialty shops and restaurants. It is located in an environment in which people can walk around with 'a small town' with a wide variety of years, and is protected by the community.
- Dempster Street - It's just outside Dempster's Chicago L System station. There are more than 60 stores, many of them small and fashionable, including Bagel Art, Vegetarian Pride Face Cafe, the Mexican Shop (which sells women's clothing and accessories around the world), Second Hand Tunes, Lolly (child's boutique) and FolkWorks Galleries.
- Main Street - Nearly three blocks adjacent to both the Chicago Transportation Bureau and the Metro Station, and a row of small interested shops in the urban redevelopment area, including Evanston Arts Depot.
- Howard Street - a line of many small shops near the Chicago border. A small thriving shopping mall, called Howard Center, was built near the border with Scoquay at the western edge of Avenue after some discussion was held in the 1990s.
- Chicago Avenue: It is an extension of a street called Clark Street running parallel to the railway line in Chicago, and runs from Howard Street to the north along the north-south highway in Evanston to the end of Northwestern University. Chicago Avenue connects Main Street, Dempster Street, and the central commercial district. There used to be a lot of car dealers, but many restaurants have attracted many restaurants, housing houses have increased and companies are interested in.
There are two general hospitals in Evanston.
- Evanston Hospital, part of the North Shore University Health System
- St. Francis Hospital, Part of Recreational Health Care
Repeated discussions in Evanston are the status of Northwestern University as a non-taxable organization. According to the University Establishment Authorization Document signed in 1851, the state has its own security, but it has no function of fire defense and emergency medical care, unlike other rich private universities that allow the exemption of asset tax and have legal exemption. They pay water, sewage and communication charges, real estate transfer taxes and substantial construction permits, but they do not pay real estate taxes. The University of North Western does not pay a replacement for the property tax and is removed from the asset tax book.
Critics of Northwestern University claim that it consumes far more from the city than it contributes. However, the supporters have reprimanded the benefits of having a privileged research institution. The dispute was rekindled when the university bought an eight-story building in the center city and removed it from the asset tax book. The Kyoto Municipal Government Commission's ordinance did not meet the Kyoto Municipal Government Council's Cabinet Order's Ordinance, which was passed in April by a referendum on the matter which university supporters called the "Shoso Amount Initiative."
Since the late 1990s, there has been a lot of discussion about the rapid increase in the development of high rise buildings, especially in the central town. The slanderous contenders argued that the development will remove what they call the "characteristic of Evanston". They say many of the local businesses will be replaced by their worst competitor, the chain store. In contrast, the supporters argue that high rise buildings bring the lives they need to live in the urban center of the city where they are dying, bringing the income they need for the city's chronic budget deficit.
As of 2006, there are concerns about the differences in finding housing that low income people in Evanston can buy. The western part of Evanston, a former powerful middle-class African american society, has been redeveloped and the population of ethnic minorities has steadily declined. Former mayor Lorraine H Morton tried to convince construction companies to build a medium-sized, expensive housing of less than $350,000, but none of his efforts succeeded.
In 2009, Northwestern University bought a fire truck for the city for $550,000. "We are happy to be able to afford the new fire engine that the city needs most in the debate about helping the city's finances," said Morton Shapiro, President of the Institute.

progress in sustainability
Evanston has vowed to be the "greenest city in the United States." The Evanston Strategy Plan, established on March 27, 2006, will create the most comfortable city in the United States, and will promote the best quality of life to all residents. One goal is to create and maintain high quality infrastructure and facilities that are functionally appropriate, sustainable and accessible. The project includes the development of environmentally friendly lakes and a comprehensive long-term infrastructure improvement plan. The second goal is not to protect the natural resources of the city, create the environment and destroy them. The city hopes to improve its transportation resources to be safer, more integrated, more accessible, more energy efficient, and more responsive to demand. The alternatives to transportation are the buses of the Chicago Transportation Bureau and Pay, the trains of the Chicago Transportation Bureau and the Metra, and side roads and bicycle roads for miles.
The global warming prevention plan of Evanston, established in November 2008, plans to integrate actions to make Evanston a more sustainable place. The main goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by various means in transportation, buildings, energy sources, waste and food production. These measures include the development oriented to supportive multi-purpose use, greening, high performance and mobility, and the promotion of car sharing and eco-path programs.
At Evanston, there is the Ford Engineering Design Center of Northwestern University and the Jewish Reconstruction Center, each of which has been certified by Silver and Platinum as environmental assessment systems. In addition, the Green Building Ordinance of Evanston has adopted certification acquisition of an environmental performance evaluation system for the development of a certain type of new building. Evanston has an Environment Council and a Sustainability Department.
