1950s Museum On the Web and in the News

The 1950s Park Forest House Museum once again is covered in a great news story. 

Alan Petrillo of Cotton & Quail Antiques Gazette has a July 3 story running on the Antique Trader website.  It includes some really great photos of the new museum.  If you have not visited since we re-opened, we have added some great new touches.  I have not been able to link to the article, but I found it with a web search under "1950s House Museum."

If you have not looked at the Historical Society’s website recently, you should go to www.parkforesthistory.org, and click on, "Growing Up Memories."  There are about 12 new memories added in the past two weeks.  We also have a link there to the MySpace account for "1950s Park Forest House Museum" which has a gallery of photos of the new museum. 

We recently went through our guest register and found that 311 people have been through the house since December 1, 2007.  They have come from 21 states.  One former Park Forest resident even came from Norway, and it was her 3rd or 4th time in our museum!  Why don’t YOU join these folks, and Step Back into the 1950s With Us?  

The Park Forest Historical Society is always looking for visitors and for volunteers to help show the house.   If you are interested in volunteering, email me at [email protected].   Join in the fun!  You will hear as many stories as you tell.
