Rockton Township Historical Society Museum


"I remember that," "Grandma had one of those." These are comments made by visitors to the Rockton Township HIstorical Society museum. Learn more about the history of our early settlers, see our collection of Wagon Wheel resort memorabilia and other items of Rockton and northern Illinois history. The house museum is a "grout house" built circa 1856. The modern Carriage House features exhibits of early Rockton and its settlers.

The Society sponsors several special events during the year. The Annual Rhubarb Fest in May features the best of our favorite rhubarb recipes for purchase. For further information call (815) 629-2210 or (815) 624-8200.
