The former country home of Charles J. Hull was turned over to Jane Addams in 1889 and became an integral part of the Hull House, an eventual complex of 12 buildings used for the social welfare programs of Miss Addams and her associates. The name Hull House also came to be associated with the program of activities conducted in these buildings. The restoration of Mr. Hull's home, made possible by contributions to the University of Illinois Foundation, is a memorial to Miss Addams, her life and works. The program now carried on a the Hull House association is located in centers in various areas of the city of Chicago.

6. Jane Addams
This 1892 portrait of Jane Addams by Alice Kellogg Tyler hangs in the Hull House.

“Alice Kellogg Tyler depicted Jane Addams, just three years after the opening of Hull-House, as deep in thought and reflection. It stands as an evocative portrayal of a woman engaged with the complex social issues of her times. The painting was commissioned by Jane's step-mother.”
