The Palatine Historical Society website is maintained by Co-Webmasters David Hammer, Historian Connie Rawa and President Joe Petykowski.

Joe approached Dave at a Society program at the Palatine Public Library in October, 2010 and suggested that the Society should create a website. Dave spoke to Cornerstone National Bank & Trust CEO Tom MacCarthy who recommended he talk to young entrepreneur Scott Lewis. Scott took the Society under his wing and set up the website in March. Dave and Connie began adding text and photos right away. We’re so proud of it!

The Society owes a great debt to Tom MacCarthy and Scott Lewis for helping the Society achieve its goals.

Thank you Tom and Scott!
