The tour revealed how diverse our history is and enriched our education of the individuals behind the names we know well: Dearborn, Fremd, Parsons, and Wainwright. And docents filled us in on the lives of many previously lesser-known, but no less illustrious, residents: Edward Eagan, Charles Francis, and Edwin Purdy.

 

For those who missed the tour, you can purchase the booklet at the Square House for a nominal amount and take a self-guided visit at your leisure.
