The Society was established in 1975 by residents who believed that this part of Chicago was a place with much to celebrate. Since then, we have hosted educational programs, published books and newsletters about the history of Rogers Park and West Ridge, and collected historical materials to ensure that the past is accessible to future residents of this great community.
Our organization depends on donations from area residents and others interested in the history of our two neighborhoods. Donations received allow us to continue to preserve Rogers Park and West Ridge history. The Society is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.
