The Lake County Historical Society was established in 1925 to "collect, preserve and disseminate information about the County of Lake and Surrounding environs." Mr. Owens, a pioneer railroader in the area, was elected first President of the Society by the eighteen (18) charter members.
The Society continued to grow under the leadership of Mr. Owens and Mr. Scott who was elected Secretary in 1929.

Later, Mr. Fowler, President and Secretary for many years, guided the development of the Society and the museum. [READ MORE]
