As the only son in a large family, one of his main personal duties was to find seven suitable husbands for his seven sisters. All seven men turned out to be prominent leaders in the early and developing northern Illinois area. Join us for this multi-media program detailing the lives of Colonel Warren’s sisters and their husbands.

What is the Warrenville Historical Society?

The purpose of the Warrenville Historical Society is to bring together those interested in Warrenville's history, and to collect, preserve and display objects and documents that illustrate that history. The Historical Society is a self-supporting not-for-profit organization.The Warrenville Historical Society was organized in 1980 and the Society opened the Warrenville Historical Museum in 1984. Space was provided for the Museum in one room of  the Greek Revival Style Albright Building through the generosity of the City of Warrenville, interest groups, businesses and individuals. The museum now encompasses the entire building. The Museum is supported by the Warrenville Historical Society Memberships, donations, fund raisers, and the Warrenville Museum Guild, as well as a grant from the City of Warrenville.

You can also follow us on our blog, www.warrenvillehistorical.wordpress.com.

This website is sponsored in part by the City of Warrenville Hotel Motel Tax Fund.
