The Glen Ellyn History Center  800 N. Main St. Glen Ellyn, IL 60137

July 2, 2019 Update

‚ÄčThe History Center will be closed throughout the month of July. Our phones are still down, so please contact us by email if needed: director@gehs.org. We expect the multipurpose room to be operational for rentals and events by September. We are not sure yet about August -- whether or not we will need to relocate our scheduled events -- so please check back. No rentals will be scheduled until September, to be on the safe side. Stacy's Tavern Museum and Stacy's Corners Store will be closed throughout August. July events have been relocated to the Community Room at the Glen Ellyn Police Station. 

We are making progress, but it is much slower than we ever anticipated. So please be patient with us -- we are doing the best we can! While insurance will help cover some of what was lost, it will not cover everything. Donations are accepted and appreciated to help with the additional costs. Questions? Just send an email to Karen Hall at director@gehs.org. Thanks!
