Heritage Hall Transformation Project

The Clarendon Hills Historical Society is dedicated to protecting and preserving the history of the Village of Clarendon Hills. We will accomplish this through the preservation, archiving and display of an artifact collection, in order to share the amazing history of the village and it's residents.

Heritage Hall will be a historically-themed educational facility and meeting place. It will be located in an existing historic village building, which was constructed to be and served for many years as the operations hub of the village's water distribution system.


Heritage Hall will serve as the home of the Clarendon Hills Historical Society. It will allow us to maintain a permanent venue and public display of artifacts and documents, including many unique items recovered from the Middaugh Mansion which was on the National Register of Historic Places. It will be an attractive meeting space for small groups (30-40) of Clarendon Hills' charitable educational and social organizations, as well as similar organizations from adjacent areas.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds to complete Phase One of our renovation plan. This phase was started with our "First 25" campaign and work to date included: Interior demo, a new slab floor, water hook-up, roofing, interior painting and masonry work, totaling $31,386.00.  We have raised an additional $25,000.00 dollars to start construction on a bathroom soon! Our goal is to raise $100,000 to complete the interior and exterior renovations. We have a two-year goal for the renovations. Once complete we can start welcoming the public to learn about our history!
