About Ginger & Jim
Ginger has lived here for 45 years after buying the original building which was a house in back and a grocery store up front. She hired Jim for a job when they both worked in the Motion Picture and TV commercial Industry in Chicago. She has been stuck with him ever since.
Ginger & Jim purchased this Townhouse in 1974
Why Ginger & Jim chose Evanston
This used to be a Grocery Store. The couple that owned and operated it lived in the house attached to the back and raised NINE children here. I was looking for a space to use to both raise a family and have a working "Art Studio"; the grocery store fit the bill as it became available when the owner's wife died and he retired. Many people in Evanston still remember going to school across the street at Washington Elementary School and then coming over to "Charlie's Store" across the street to get some candy after school let out. We recently travelled to California to visit the youngest son of the owner (the son is now 93 years old!). We shared many memories and stories of the building over the years and returned with a good history of the family business that will be available to anyone that is interested via our website or to guests via a magazine-type welcome packet that we provide.
What makes this Townhouse unique
This is one of only a handful of properties in Evanston that has been fully inspected and Licensed by the City for Short Term Rentals like this. Also- NO ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE!
