The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is located in the two remaining settlement house buildings of the original 13 building Settlement house complex. The museum honors social reformer Jane Addams, the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and her work to improve the lives of Chicago immigrants and transform policy on education, public health, labor practices, and immigrant rights. The surviving buildings are the Hull Home, a National Historic Landmark originally built in the 1850s, and the Residents’ Dining Hall, an Arts and Crafts style building used during the Settlement’s 75 year history to host social reformers and activist including W.E.B DuBois.
