Title

National WCTU Publishing House

Description

In 1900, two years after the death of Frances Willard, the WCTU transferred their National Headquarters from the Woman’s Temple Building in downtown Chicago to Willard’s Evanston home, Rest Cottage. The WCTU bought the Woman’s Temperance Publishing Association in 1903 and moved their press to Evanston, constructing an addition on the rear of Rest Cottage in 1907. As printing operations expanded, the WCTU built the Literature Building (1910), which currently houses the Frances E. Willard Memorial Library and WCTU Archives.
