We are a local historical society founded originally to coincide with the Old Edgebrook Landmark District, City of Chicago. We have expanded our horizons to include Sauganash for Forest Glen, neighboring communities here on the northwest side of Chicago. We are centered in the Caldwell's Reserve of Billy Caldwell's grant from the US government of 1828. We hope to establish a local history museum some day.
