Carl Sandburg in Elmhurst
Prairie poet, Lincoln biographer, newspaperman, political activist, movie critic, family man, author
-- Carl Sandburg wore many hats during the 1920s when he resided with his family in the Chicago suburb of Elmhurst. This new exhibit, created by the Elmhurst Historical Museum staff, features many rare photos, video footage, and artifacts related to Sandburg from his prolific Elmhurst years. 


Visions of Home
This award-winning exhibit tells the story of Elmhurst from its beginnings as a prairie village to a modern Midwestern suburb. Examine items and images of our town's history from 1834 to the present. To view Visions of Home in detail, take the Virtual Tour.

From Mansion to Museum
This permanent display traces the evolution of the Glos Mansion, from private residence to public institution. Having served as both City Hall and a museum after being a home for 40 years, the Glos Mansion is much changed. The exhibit includes drawings and furnishings from various time periods.
