Mission statement

The East Peoria Historical Society was created and exists for the purpose of the research, study and preservation of the history of the East Peoria area.

With each passing day, treasures of information and artifacts important to our past are forever lost. Knowing that, it is the mission of this organization to actively assimilate material for the enrichment and enjoyment of present and future generations.

Charting the future while preserving the past are essential elements of a progressive community. To our part of that responsibility, we dedicate our efforts.
