About Us

Incorporated in 1968, the Downers Grove Historical Society is an independent, non-profit volunteer organization whose work is funded entirely by memberships and donations.

A board of nine members is elected by the membership to serve a two-year term. Board meetings are held once a month and a general membership meeting is held once a year. All of our meetings are open to the public.

We believe that by promoting the rich and unique history of Downers Grove we can create a strong sense of place and a vibrant community for residents, businesses, and well as visitors. Your membership in the Downers Grove Historical Society will support several community programs including:
