Centennial Family Awards

The Centennial Family Awards program honors families who have lived in Lake Forest/Lake Bluff continuously for 100 years or more. The awards are presented to three families each spring at the Historical Society’s Annual Meeting. This program provides both a wonderful tribute to the families involved and an opportunity for families to remember and explore stories from their past.

Eligible families may nominate themselves for the Centennial Family Awards. Nominations are accepted at any time. To nominate your family for the award, download our Nomination Form here.

For questions or more information about the program, contact Curator Laurie Stein. In 2017, the Centennial Family Awards will take place on Thursday, April 27.

Video from the 2011 Centennial Family Awards is shown below. The Centennial Family Awards portion of the program begins at the 12:30 mark of the embedded video.
