For house painting in Evanston, Chicago’s neighbor to the north, the first company you need to call is Fortune Restoration. Evanston has a fascinating history. Originally the home of the Pottawattamie tribe, the area that became Evanston was first called Grosse Pointe by intrepid French explorers, a reference to the jut of land in the area extending into Lake Michigan.


In the 1830s, farmers from New York and, eventually, German-speaking immigrants began settling what was to become Evanston. A group of Methodist businessmen in 1851 established Northwestern University, hoping it would become a center of academic excellence, which indeed it has. The town acquired a sizeable African-American population after the Civil War, and like its western neighbor, Oak Park, Evanston’s population grew after the great Chicago fire of 1871. Thousands of well-to-do Chicagoans, fearing another fire, fled to Evanston, building new homes there.


Located 12 miles north of the Chicago’s Loop, Evanston today is an eclectic mix of shops and boutiques, restaurants, public gardens and museums, as well as the Queen Anne and Tudor Revival houses on Maple Avenue, all on the National Register of Historic Places.
