Monthly Calendar of Events, Exhibits & Programs
The Historical Society presents a wide range of events, museum exhibits and programs each year for the benefit of community members and vistors.

In addition to the current exhibits at Pleasant Home, we sponsor or co-sponsor a variety of special events within our communities to help tell the stories of Oak Park and River Forest. From programs for children and families to village trolley tours, house and cemetery walks, the Society offers year-round activities that inform, entertain and inspire. This calendar is updated regularly, so check back often.
