Please Join us on June 5th when we will have a Good Ol Summertime Festival at the Clayson House from 11:00 to 4:00 rain or shine.
This site is operated by the Palatine Historical Society Board. Our purpose is to increase public knowledge of Palatine and Palatine Township and encourage people to visit the Clayson House Museum.
Cemetery Walk 2016
This year’s cemetery walk centers around Palatine’s 150th year of incorporation that took place in 1866. This anniversary is known as a sesquicentennial. The year 1866 is the center point of our walk. Men and women who were alive in that year will tell you what life was like in Palatine at that time. We have chosen Palatine’s first mayor, Myron Lytle, a Civil War veteran, and an early settler among others. Come and visit with these people and spend some time with former Palatine citizens.
