Jane Addams - Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Jane started Hull House in Chicago. Hull House was a community center with day care, a gym, and a playground. There was also a first–aid center and a school where cooking and sewing classes were taught. Jane's Hull House also offered young people an opportunity to develop talents in music, art, and drama.
