In 2010 Master Distiller Paul Hletko founded Few Spirits – Evanston’s first craft distillery since the earliest days of Prohibition in the United States. Hletko draws inspiration from distilling recipes of the past in producing his award-winning White Whiskey and American Gin. Few also pays homage – with a wink and a nod – to educator and womens suffragist Frances Elizabeth Willard (1839-1898), a key figure of the Temperance Movement and revered Evanston resident.

The Evanston History Center
The mission of the Evanston History Center, founded as the Evanston Historical Society in 1898 is "…to collect and preserve the materials of history concerning the City of Evanston and vicinity, and to disseminate historical information…". Since its inception, the organization has worked to serve all Evanston’s people through exhibits, educational programs and research facilities.
In 1942 United States Vice President Charles Gates Dawes announced he would donate his Evanston lakefront mansion to Northwestern University for use as a "historical center". In 1960 the EHC moved into the Dawes House and continues its operations there presently. The Dawes House was named a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
Over the years the EHC has been a diligent custodian of the Dawes House, making important repairs and improvements, all while expanding its public programming. The organization renamed itself the Evanston History Center in 2007 in order to reflect its new goal of becoming a gathering place for the community.
