This event is open to members, friends, and the public. MCHS Members are encouraged to bring a friend, and those who do will be entered into a prize drawing!


The highlight of the evening will be the unveiling of our five new museum exhibits:


You Auto be in McHenry County, McHenry County Enlists:
The Great War, 1914-1918, Strike up the Band, and Bootleggers & Speakeasies: Prohibition in McHenry County.

In honor of this anniversary and to share the history of McHenry County, the Anderson Gallery will feature a unique exhibition called "60 Years, 60 Objects: Stories from McHenry County." This exhibit will showcase 60 never-before-seen objects from the historical society's collection.
