History Center of Lake Forest / Lake Bluff

Originally named the Lake Forest Lake Bluff Historical Society, the History Center of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff has been around for nearly a half century and is now an innovative new museum at 509 E Deerpath in Lake Forest. With 24 public programs a year, and three planned temporary exhibits, as well as offering our robust permanent exhibit hall, we have something for everyone. The museum is free and open every day except Monday.

Our mission to is ensure that the stories of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff are shared now and with generations to come.

We look forward to seeing you at the museum, or attending our programs, and online.
