The original station opened in 1912, with a station house designed by Arthur Gerber added in 1913. In 1984, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. A new station was built close to the original station from October 1991 until September 1993; the original station house has since been converted into retail space.
The station is located at 349 Linden Avenue in Wilmette, Illinois. It is the northernmost 'L' station in the CTA system, and it is the only remaining station on the Purple Line at ground level after the line descends from the elevated embankment shortly after crossing the North Shore Channel and entering Wilmette. An older station, the Linden Avenue Terminal, remains; it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The station is only a few blocks west of the Bahá'í House of Worship, and is about a mile east of Metra's Wilmette station.
