Please Support our Society, for yourself and your family.
Established in 1963, our members, staff and volunteers have an almost fifty-year track record rich in preservation, education, and entertainment contributions to McHenry County.
We create learning experiences and events. We focus on local culture, organizational and family history. We collect and care for notable artifacts. We participate in the activities of like-minded organizations, throughout McHenry County.
Preserving a community provides multi-sensory collective memory. Ultimately, our goal is to encourage the appreciation of all aspects of our environment, both natural and man-made. Appreciation of history will most definitely enrich your family’s lives and experiences.
Individuals who are sensitive to their environment make better citizens. Better citizens vote, they participate in community life and they teach their children by example.
Your financial support is required to continue our mission of providing the methods and means of presenting McHenry County History, to enrich life.
Our Society relies upon you for financial support through membership, endowment funds and by remembering the Society in your estate planning.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are fully deductible. Our dues are affordable. Please join today.
