Glen Ellyn, like most suburban areas, has pretty much built over its history and in the process, like much of America, leaves one feeling that anywhere is like everywhere. The Historical Society does preserve what remains of the village's past. I have used its collection of papers and artifacts to explore long-forgotten individuals who really did contribute local and national history.

This is a very small but relevant museum in Glen Ellyn. So much history and lots of fun things to look at and remember.

You'll love the story the history of Glen Ellyn has to tell! This picturesque village with its New England flavor with soft rolling hills that attracted its first settlers, then a resort town as Lake Ellyn emerged. It s all here! Historical photos and a working history museum! Stop in and see for yourself!
