The Glencoe Historical Society

The Glencoe Historical Society is a Section 503(c)(3) not-for-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers and supported through memberships, contributions, grants and the sales of publications and Glencoe gifts.

Founded in 1937, the Glencoe Historical Society is devoted to the collection, protection and preservation of items related to the Village of Glencoe, its residents and its institutions. In addition to presenting award winning exhibits at the Eklund Museum campus located at 375 Park Avenue, we also sponsor programs and events for residents and visitors both individually and in cooperation with various community partners including the Village of Glencoe, the Glencoe Public Library, the Glencoe Park District, the Glencoe public schools, Family Service of Glencoe and others.

Our Research Center manages our collection and is available to anyone who has questions about Glencoe history. Both the Museum and Research Center have regular hours and are also open by appointment.  We recommend that you call ahead to confirm that our campus is open before you plan a visit.
