The Crystal Lake Historical Society is in the process of creating a brand new, fabulous website!  The new website will be hosted through another service provider.  We are concentrating our time and energy on the new site development.  We ask for your patience, as the new website should be up and running sometime in August, 2017.

Our website address will remain the same. Check back often, and be prepared for a great new experience in history!
