Community Memorial to Bill Mueller

The memorial gazebo to remember long-time Village President William "Bill" Mueller has been built! We are thrilled that nearly 100 people joined us on a chilly October 31 for the dedication of this beautiful new gazebo.

Contributions are still being accepted at the Community Memorial Site web site.

Carriage House Capital Campaign

Why did we expand the Carriage House?

  • The Society received a $70,000 grant provided construction was completed in 2012. We met that goal on time!
  • To bring this village-owned property into ADA-compliance
  • To enhance our ability to tell Lombard’s stories through exciting and interactive exhibits
  • To add the capacity to host classrooms of students, and to offer expanded tours

Why did the Village of Lombard give money to this project?

  • Capital improvement of a village-owned property (sidewalks, sewer/water, and fire/burglar protection)
  • The village has maintained the carriage house since 1980 when it was placed on the Maple Street property
  • The Village also loaned money to the Historical Society to be repaid by 2015.

I love Lombard! How can I donate to this project?

  • Thank you! Visit our donation page for details.
  • We need $25,000 more to complete the loan.
