New History Center corporate memberships provide businesses with added value and special gift memberships for clients, patrons, or staff. Through History Center gift memberships, you can show your commitment to local history and to your staff and clients with a gift that will keep on giving throughout the year.

The History Center of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff is a vibrant museum campus offering fascinating programs, exhibits and tours year-round.
