Your support makes the History Center of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff a welcoming place for all.

History Center donors make it possible for our community to enjoy unique experiences with history. Maybe you loved engaging exhibitions like Wild America: Portraits in Nature by James L. Lockhart, or thought-provoking lectures like The Rise and Fall of the House of Judah, presented by Community Contributor Liam Connell. Perhaps sharing a personal anecdote in Studio 509, our new oral history booth, provided a special opportunity to reflect on why this community means so much to you.

When you give to the History Center you make these unique experiences possible and help preserve the stories of our community for future generations to enjoy.
