Woodford County Historical and Genealogical Society

Dedicated to the preservation and sharing of the history of Woodford County, Illinois.

Since its establishment in 1903, Woodford County Historical Society (WCHGS) has been preserving the history of Woodford County by gathering information, artifacts, and archival materials.  WCHGS passively and actively seeks artifacts and archival items that exemplify daily life and special events of the people and communities of Woodford County.

We have hundreds of artifacts and archival materials in our collections.  The collections include archaeological, military, business, government, organizational, school, farming, and family items.

WCHGS’s collections are held in public trust.  The Board and staff take care to follow professional museum standards in caring for the collections.
