With your support, we are able to preserve and share the story of Rogers Park and West Ridge, and the rich cultural heritage of these communities.

Our extensive collection of artifacts and documents along with a digital photo archive of more than 4,500 historical images are a treasure trove of local history. We welcome inquiries – about local families, local schools and churches, or any other topic that sparks your curiosity.

Our speaker series, guided tours, oral history program and publications connect residents, visitors, researchers, and all who love our city’s neighborhoods with the remarkable story of Chicago’s Far North Side, from the earliest inhabitants to the diverse population of today.

You will also receive invitations to member-only events; reduced prices on tickets to tours, workshops and other Society programs; and discounts on books and merchandise from our museum store. Most of all, you provide support that makes our community stronger by celebrating its history for years to come.
