NWCHS Mission Statement

As the Northwest Chicago Historical Society, our mission is to educate others about the history of the Northwest neighborhoods of Chicago. 

We will accomplish this through discussion at meetings, public tours and events, and dissemination of historical documents and photos though publications.   Additionally, we desire to collaborate with others in the community to continue to maintain and preserve the history of our collective neighborhoods.  

By linking the past with the present and the future, we will provide awareness and create appreciation for our place in Chicago’s and Illinois’ history.
