The Flagg Township Historical Society is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that was formed in 1968 to collect and preserve the history of Flagg Township. Franklin Kruger, the Society’s founder proposed the old City and Town Hall be saved from demolition and restored to be used as the Historical Society Museum.
The Historical Society began collecting artifacts, photos and documents that reflect the history of Rochelle and Flagg Township that now form the Museum collection.
The collection includes thousands of items, many of which are exhibited on all three floors of the Museum.
The Mission of the Flagg Township Historical Society and Museum is to stimulate interest in Flagg Township history through education, research, collection and preservation of information for the benefit of the public of today and in the future.
Inspiring the community to know the past, both local and global, in order to guide the future.
The Flagg Township Museum partnered with the City of Rochelle when it acquired the building and continues to participate in many of the city sponsored events.
The Rochelle Park District and the Museum work together on projects and programs to benefit residents of Rochelle and Flagg Township.
