WHO WE ARE

The Winnebago Community Historical Society is a group of community members whose goal is to collect, preserve & interpret the history of the Winnebago Illinois area. Formed in 2018, WCHS is a registered 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization. Our strong core of support is the group of Charter Members whose dedication and financial support made it possible for us to organize. We are governed by a Board of Directors, elected at our annual membership meeting.
