Our Town. Our History.
Our Heritage.

The mission of the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation is to stimulate broad-based support for local history, the Elmhurst History 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.
