Hull of a House

Celebrating Miss Addams


“She was one of the most loved and hated women in America,”

-Louise Knight, Author

“We like to sanitize iconic heroes. Jane Addams was radical and fought against norms of the time. She believed in a common good, in which we all had a stake in each other’s future.”

-Lisa Lee, Hull-House Museum Director
