Save Our Town Hall - Winnebago, IL

The Winnebago Community Historical Society needs your support in raising funds to continue renovations to the Town Hall.

Since 1893, the Town Hall, located in the heart of the Village of Winnebago, has touched the lives of thousands of people, both young and old.  It was originally used for entertainment and events, for exhibits and workshops, for community organization and family gatherings.

After years of neglect and facing possible demolition, the Town Hall was donated to The Winnebago Community Historical Society.   Since then, several groups and individuals have donated money, materials and time to replace the roof and gutters and to install two ADA accessible restrooms.  These updates will allow the society to host more events and the community to utilize the hall as well.

This year, the WCHS needs your support in repairing the crumbling brick work.  Completing this project is critical in maintaining the integrity and outward appearance of the building.

The WCHS is asking for your support today.  You can make a significant impact on our efforts to preserve this beautiful historic building.  All donations, large or small, are needed and very much appreciated!

Please donate today either through this site or directly to the Winnebago Community Historical Society, PO Box 95, Winnebago, IL  61088.  Donations can also be made to our "Town Hall Renovation Account" at any German American State Bank located in German Valley, Pecatonica, Seward, and Winnebago, IL.
