What Makes Evanston Special?

Built in 1926 as a fireproof storage warehouse owned by the Iredale Storage and Moving Company, 1723 Benson Avenue housed a labyrinth of reinforced concrete and brick curtain walls. It was actually five buildings constructed at separate times, four to eight stories tall, filled with about 600 storage compartments and electric freight elevators. The Evanston Athletic Club took over the space in 1980, maintaining much of the building’s façade, skeletal structure, and interior elements. In 1990, then-manager Pat Cunningham became the owner, adding his own flair and style to the building’s original features. It’s possible those old storage doors you see throughout the club housed some old-Evanston treasures!
