Heroes Exhibit Coming Soon

We're opening our new temporary exhibit on April 5 - June 3. To coincide with the Lilac Parade theme "Who is your hero?" this exhibit focuses on the men and women of Lombard who served in the military or auxiliary services during WWI and WWII. 
Visit our exhibit at the Carriage House on Weds, Fridays, and Saturdays from April 5 - June 3. $2/person suggested donation.  

If you have any memorabilia (such as letters, photos, medals) relating to Lombardians who served during either World War - call us at 630-629-1885, or contact our archivist. We'd love to share your story with the community.
