Our Beginnings

The Crystal Lake Historical Society was founded April 14, 2000 by local residents who were concerned that the history of our community was not being preserved for future generations.  The Society invites all who share this concern to discover and learn about our exciting heritage and to help plan for our future.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Crystal Lake Historical Society is to identify, preserve, present and promote through education the history of Crystal Lake, Illinois.
