Love History?  Join the Winnetka Historical Society Board of Directors!

We are actively seeking community members to serve on our Board of Directors.  If you are interested in local history, serving your community and learning more about Winnetka’s unique past, please consider becoming involved in WHS. Our mission it to honor and preserve the village’s heritage, gather and share the artifacts and stories of its past, and foster meaningful connections among Winnetkans and the broader community.  If interested, please contact the Executive Director at or at the Museum at 847-446-0001 for more information and to request a board member application.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.  All community members are welcome to apply.
