You are here

“Get Your Hero On” The McHenry County Human Race on Sunday, April 26, at McHenry County College has been canceled due to health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.. Money received through race registrations and donations will be distributed to the agencies as planned.

The community is invited to continue donating to participating charities. Fundraising pages will remain open until April 30. Click HERE to donate to our Green Latern team.

The monies raised for the McHenry County Historical Society fund the Nancy Fike Scholarship. This scholarship, established in 2012, is for a high school senior who has an interest in history and education. It is a $1,000 scholarship and awarded at the McHenry County Historical Society’s annual meeting. We have supporters such as yourselves to thank for remaining a vibrant, vital organization after 54 years. People understand that we are not a bunch of blue-haired ladies sitting in some dusty room. We advocate for historical structures. We educate your children. We publish articles. We run a research library. We own and operate a historical museum, log cabin, an 1895 church and two, one-room schoolhouses. Key is a dedicated board and staff, some 300 volunteers, nearly 600 members and YOU.
