Donations

We are especially interested in obtaining artifacts and information on the families of DuPage and Wheatland Townships. We seek donations from anyone cleaning out their attics, garages or homes of relatives. Please do not throw out old snapshots, playbills, yearbooks, tools and utensils. Or if you have something you just can’t part with, how about loaning it to us? We would be glad to display your precious item(s) with a note displaying the message that it is on loan. We will take great care in the handling of your property and place it on display in secured cases at the Bolingbrook Historical Museum.
