Lake Forest Legacy Project

Calling all Lake Forest businesses and institutions - make history with the Lake Forest Legacy Project!

The Historical Society wants to celebrate your part in Lake Forest’s heritage and highlight your accomplishments through the Legacy Project.

This project, launched in 2011 for the sesquicentennial, seeks to collect historical information about community institutions, from book clubs to businesses, for a special archive of Lake Forest information. This project will be ongoing through 2012.

All Lake Forest businesses, organizations, clubs, and groups can participate in one of three ways:

  • Sending an institutional history to the Historical Society
  • Filling out and submitting our brief Legacy Project form - also available as a Word document
  • Donating your organization’s records, newsletters, meeting minutes, news clippings, or photographs to the Historical Society to be preserved in our museum and made available to researchers

To find out more about the Lake Forest Legacy Project, contact the Curator.
