Highlighting Downers Grove

Downers Grove Historical Society

831 Maple Ave
Downers Grove, IL 60515

Incorporated in 1968, the Downers Grove Historical Society is an independent, non-profit volunteer organization whose work is funded entirely by memberships and donations.

A board of nine members is elected by the membership to serve a two-year term. Board meetings are held once a month and a general membership meeting is held once a year. All of our meetings are open to the public.

We believe that by promoting the rich and unique history of Downers Grove we can create a strong sense of place and a vibrant community for residents, businesses, and well as visitors. Your membership in the Downers Grove Historical Society will support several community programs including:

Restoration and Maintenance of the Historic Main Street Cemetery
Recognition of Historical Structures and Neighborhoods throughout Downers Grove
Oversight of the Historic Home Program in partnership with the Downers Grove Museum
