We are Dedicated to the History & Heritage of Oak Brook, Illinois
The Oak Brook Historical Society was established in 1975 to serve as a community advocate for the historic preservation of our village and to be a resource for research and preservation of our history. Our current goal is to restore the Old Butler School which will serve the community as the Oak Brook Heritage Center, operated by the Oak Brook Historical Society. The Heritage Center will provide multigenerational programming, exhibits of the heritage and history of Oak Brook, a research library, and small group meeting space. At the Heritage Center, school children, their families, seniors and visitors alike will have the opportunity to learn from our past and dream of the future.
