The LaSalle County Historical Society celebrated its centennial anniversary during 2007. The founders had a vision in 1907. They wrote "Without an organization of this sort much of value to posterity would be obliterated by the passage of years from the annals of our county's history."
Our resolve today is much the same--to procure and save the historical treasures of LaSalle County for the present and future generations.
