Carriage House Capital Campaign

Why did we expand the Carriage House?

  • The Society received a $70,000 grant provided construction was completed in 2012. We met that goal on time!
  • To bring this village-owned property into ADA-compliance
  • To enhance our ability to tell Lombard’s stories through exciting and interactive exhibits
  • To add the capacity to host classrooms of students, and to offer expanded tours

Why did the Village of Lombard give money to this project?

  • Capital improvement of a village-owned property (sidewalks, sewer/water, and fire/burglar protection)
  • The village has maintained the carriage house since 1980 when it was placed on the Maple Street property
  • The Village also loaned money to the Historical Society..

I love Lombard! How can I donate to this project?

  • Thank you! Visit our donation page for details.
  • We are looking for $17,000 more to fulfill the loan.
