Join Us to Help Preserve Our History

You are here

When you support the McHenry County Historical Society, many benefits become yours. Did you know that WITHOUT ANY USE OF TAX DOLLARS, we continue to collect and hold in our collection, the three dimensional teaching artifacts of human progress? And, that our museum provides a family-oriented entertainment and educational destination, uniquely and interactively telling the ongoing story of McHenry County and its people?

And, that our research library (free to members) houses thousands of technical books and pamphlets; photographs; post cards; maps; journals; business, club, school and governmental records; local history books; biographical files; scrapbooks; newspapers; phone directories; high school yearbooks and knowledgeable people with answers to all sorts of questions you may ask?

And, that we create learning experiences and events, participating in the activities of like-minded organizations throughout McHenry County?

And, that our staff and volunteers have collective fun while teaching, learning and experiencing history together?


Visit our Support page for even more details. One key benefit is our history-packed newsletter, The Tracer.  Sixteen pages of news, articles, interviews, photographs and more will be mailed to you each quarter.
