The mission of the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation is to stimulate broad-based support for local history, the Elmhurst Historical Museum and the Churchville Schoolhouse through advocacy, education and fundraising.
Because of the community’s generous support, we’ve grown tremendously over the past several years. There’s a lot going on with both the foundation and the museum. Take some time to look around and see what we have to offer! We welcome you to join us in our mission.
What's going on at the Heritage Foundation?
The Elmhurst Heritage Foundation invites the community—residents, business owners and history enthusiasts—to take part in this unique opportunity to tell the story of our town in an engaging and educational way for future generations. Please consider a major gift or donation that will ensure we fulfill our long-term commitment to bring a new local history exhibit to the Elmhurst Historical Museum. A number of exclusive naming opportunities are available to honor loved ones and pay tribute to past and present visionaries of Elmhurst.
Please be a part of it all—our town, our history and our heritage! Together, we can write a new chapter in Elmhurst history.Read More
