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.
Our Cemetery Walk will take place Sunday, May 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Hillside Cemetery, Smith St. north of Colfax St. Actors will portray early local teachers.
Society President Joe Petykowski will give our May program on “High School Yearbooks”!
The program was great and the meeting room was full of visitors. The three people shown here are early graduates and answered questions from the audience. Harold & Ethel graduated in 1933 (that’s right, they are just shy of 100 years of age). Eleanor is not far behind; she graduated in 1937.
We are proud to announce our 2015 scholarship winners: Megan Beach and Caitlin Riedy have each won a one-year scholarship of $1,500.00! Congratulations Megan and Caitlin!
The History Crawl will take place Friday, June 19 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in downtown Palatine. More details later.
