Evanston (elevation 600 ft., Central Time: UTC-0600, 42°02'28"N 087°41'24"W) is a city on Lake Michigan located in Cook County, Illinois directly north of Chicago, east of Skokie, and south of Wilmette. The city was first settled in 1836, and as of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 74,239.

After being chosen as the home for Northwestern University, the city was incorporated in 1863, and named after John Evans. During the 1960s Northwestern University changed the city's shoreline with a 74 acre (300,000 mē) landfill.

Today, the city is home to Northwestern University and other educational institutions as well as headquarters of Rotary International, the National Lekotek Center and the Women's Christian Temperance Union. The local public high school is named Evanston Township High School (ETHS) and the mascot is the Wildkits (a diminutive of Northwestern's Wildcats) with the school colors orange and blue. ETHS, with an enrollment of just over 3000, serves all of Evanston and a small part of Skokie. The region of Skokie served by Evanston schools is referred to colloquially as Skevanston.

Famous Evanstonians include politicians Charles Gates Dawes and Jim Kolbe, temperance advocate and suffragist Frances Willard, musicians Eddie Vedder and David Burge, and actors Charlton Heston, John Cusack, Joan Cusack, and Jeremy Piven.

Evanston is also the birthplace of tinkertoys and (allegedly) the ice cream sundae.

Evanston has a City Manager system of government and is divided into nine wards, each of which is represented by an Alderman, or member of the Evanston City Council. Its current mayor is Lorraine H. Morton. The city government has often had a shaky relationship with Northwestern University, which does not pay property taxes to the city. This is due to the founding charter of Northwestern University, signed in 1851, which granted the school a permanent exemption from paying property taxes.

The CTA's Purple Line runs through Evanston. The stops are Howard, South Blvd, Main, Dempster, Davis, Foster, Noyes and Central. Metra runs through Evanston as well, with stations at Main Street, Davis Street and Central Street. The Yellow Line also runs through the city, however it does not make any stops in Evanston.
