Who We Are

The Carol Stream Historical Society is comprised of volunteers who share the passion of preserving and presenting the history of the community. 

What We Do

The goal of the Carol Stream Historical Society is to preserve a remembrance of the dramatic development of the area from the days of being a prairie through conversion to a farming community until the formation and progress of the Village as it exists today, and to provide for the accumulation of artifacts and experiences well into the next millennium. 

How We Do It 

• Hold tours with appointment and on special event days 
• Give presentation to local schools on community history  
• Sponsor lectures and exhibits  
• Cooperate with other organizations that share our goals and concerns  
• Endeavor to archive and protect surviving records and personal collections relating to Carol Stream
