About the East Peoria Historical Society

The East Peoria Historical Society was formed in 1999 as a result of the City of East Peoria receiving the gift of the Doering Homeplace, built circa 1888, from Dr. James Healey and his wife, Barbara Doering Healy.

The purpose of the society is to accumulate, organize, protect, display,
and make available to the public all the information that the Society
has to share.
