The 2021 Historic Sites Program & Plaque Presentation, “Around the Corner Plaquing”, will be held on Sunday, November 7th at 2pm.

After the hiatus of 2020, we will be awarding plaques to four homes in West Dundee. Three of them are in the block bordered by Second and Third Streets and Oregon Avenue and Liberty Street.

At 219 South Third Street stands the William Oatman house, a handsome three-story red brick structure.

In the 200-block of South Second Street are two sizable frame homes. And in the 300-block of South Second is a large brick four-square which boasts porches on both the main and second floors.

All four houses date between 1904 and 1918 and are carefully maintained to perpetuate their original appearance.

All area residents are invited to attend this recognition program to learn about some of the earlier residents of Dundee Township, popular structure styles of the past, and ways to keep or restore their homes to the original architectural design.

The program will be held at the Historical Society Museum. There will be no admission charge, donations are graciously accepted.

For more information, call the museum at 847-428-6996.

Passport to Adventure Summer 2021

 Visit your favorite museums throughout Kane and DuPage Counties every summer with the Passport to Adventure, brought to you by the Kane DuPage Regional Museum Association (KDRMA). In past years Passport books were available at participating museums and local libraries.

This year we’ll be moving to a digital passport! With the ongoing changes at all the KDRMA institutions the past year and now that things are opening back up we thought it was the best option. KDRMA is working hard behind the scenes to get the app up and running as soon as possible! 
If you’re looking for one now you can find the Passport from last year on the website still

We are excited to bring you the new experience so please bear with us and hope you are already enjoying all of our wonderful Kane DuPage sites this summer!!
