Welcome to the Grafton, Illinois Historical Society's Website!
The Grafton Historical Society is pleased to announce that we have received an Illinois Museum grant to build our own Historical Museum here in Grafton. We plan to build the museum as an addition to the Grafton Visitors Center. We hope to feature displays that focus on the History of Grafton and its connection to the Rivers. Once we begin, we will post updates and pictures on this website. We are very excited and look forward to this project!
