The Elmhurst Historical Museum is an award-winning regional history museum founded in 1957 and operated by the City of Elmhurst. The mission of the Elmhurst Historical Museum is to engage people with history through thoughtful collection, enlightening exhibits, and diverse educational experiences. The Elmhurst Historical Museum is located in a historically significant structure known as the Glos Mansion, which is the former home of Elmhurst's first village president, Henry Glos, and his wife, Lucy. The Elmhurst Historical Museum also operates the Churchville Schoolhouse, a completely restored National Register of Historic Places property located on Church Road in Bensenville. The Churchville Schoolhouse provides schoolchildren and groups with an authentic living history experience led by an old-fashioned school marm from the early 1900s (by appointment only).
