Since 1963 the McHenry County Historical Society has strived to engage and educate current and future generations about the history of McHenry County. Besides operating the museum, the Society plaques historic sites and structures, hosts workshops and classes, makes available satellite exhibits and arranges a wide variety of school and other group programs.
Funding for the Society comes from membership dues, admission fees, donations and a trust fund. For many years, they have published a comprehensive quarterly newsletter, The Tracer. To receive this valuable resource, join our organization.
