The Hinsdale Historical Society Women's Board is a volunteer service organization dedicated to support the Hinsdale Historical Society and its mission to bridge the past, present and future by engaging the community with its history and architecture. Our goal is to foster the appreciation of Hinsdale history and architecture through fundraising, education and programs.
Hinsdale Historical Society
For more than thirty years, the Hinsdale Historical Society has been devoted to collecting, preserving, and promoting the history of Hinsdale. The Society is an active group of dedicated citizens, who are committed to local historic preservation. The Society is the home of Hinsdale’s history.
The archives and collections contain a multitude of photos, oral histories, documents, and artifacts that share the story of Hinsdale. The Hinsdale Historical Society has preserved, and is maintaining, three historic properties in the Village:
The Hinsdale History Museum, housed in an 1874 Italianate-style home
Immanuel Hall, a simple, carpenter Gothic style frame church built by local residents in 1900
The R. Harold Zook Home and Studio, a unique cottage designed and built in 1924 by the prominent local architect
Besides the three historic properties, the Society maintains the Roger and Ruth Anderson Architecture Center, located in the lower level of Immanuel Hall, which serves as an architectural resource for the Village and beyond.
