Frankfort was founded in 1855 and incorporated in 1879. The land was initially inhabited by Native American Indians from as early as 1700. Then came the French fur traders and land speculators who became the first “owners” of the land in Frankfort Township, in the sense they came to work and live on the land.
It’s that time of year when we ask for the support of our regular members and welcome those who wish to become new members. We appreciate the continued support we have received from her loyal members and thanks so much to those that have become life members of FAHS.
With your paid membership, you will receive the FAHS newsletter, have access to museum files and receive discounts on purchases made at the museum. As you may already know FAHS dues are used in part for the benefit of Lincoln Way student scholarships, Frankfurt historical preservation, kids work Chuck Museum, and our annual subscription to ancestry.com through the Frankfort public library and help maintain smooth running historical society and museum.
We continue to ask for volunteers to greet visitors on Sundays from 11 to 2 PM ensuring the museum can be open on a regular basis. We are so grateful for those who have given their time in the past years please call us at 815 space 325 space 8191 or 815-469-6541 to reserve your Sunday. Thank you!.
