Morris Downtown Development Partnership
The Grundy County Historical Society, a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1923. Our mission is to provide the methods and means of preserving and presenting Grundy County history to enrich life.
The GCHS operates a museum located near the historic I&M Canal in Morris, Illinois. Within the museum you will find an array of historical items including those pictured above. There are several cases on display filled with WWI and WWII memorabilia, artifacts from the Civil War era, and local history objects.
Along with the museum, the Society owns an EJ & E railroad caboose which is open to the public for tours upon request. Funding for the society comes from membership dues and through donations.
