Hinsdale Cooks! Kitchen Walk, the Society’s signature fundraiser, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The loss of the financial support from this event is severe. The proceeds from this annual event are the primary resources that fund the organization’s operations and programming, including the preservation and maintenance of
three historic buildings - Immanuel Hall,
Hinsdale History Museum, and the R. Harold Zook Home and Studio.
Your donation will help us continue serving and supporting our community and its rich history.
Since 1975, the Hinsdale Historical Society has been THE home of Hinsdale’s history. With its mission to bridge the past, present, and future by engaging the community with its history and architecture, the Society is devoted to collecting, preserving, and promoting the history of Hinsdale, Illinois. Besides housing archives and collections containing a multitude of photos, oral histories, documents and artifacts that share the story of Hinsdale, the Society has rehabilitated and is maintaining three historic properties in the Village. The Hinsdale History Museum, Immanuel Hall, and the R. Harold Zook Home and Studio each hold significant stories to Hinsdale's unique past. The preservation of these three properties, the operation of the Roger and Ruth Anderson Architecture Center, as well as the extensive archival treasures that the Society cares for are evidence of the dedication and commitment the Society brings to Hinsdale history.
