Local History

About Our Collection
Our Local History Collection is housed in the lower level of the Minooka Branch. Our collection contains historical information from Channahon, Minooka, Aux Sable and Channahon Townships. Our collection includes genealogical information, photographs, yearbooks, area maps and plat books, newspapers and clippings, church records and more.  You can visit in person by making an appointment or visit our Photobucket page to view some of our historical photos.
The Local History Museum is open Monday evenings and the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.  These dates and times are subject to change.  Appointments are also available.  To schedule an appointment, call Michele at 815-467-1600 x207.
We are always looking for new information about the history of our area. Donations are gratefully accepted but not always necessary. We can also photograph, copy or scan your materials and return them to you.

Because of the limited hours of our collection, our local history clerk can do searches by email or phone:
