THE HISTORY OF LISLE | The Museums at Lisle Station Park



THE ROOTS AND CULTURE OF LISLE ARE STILL ALIVE AT THE MUSEUMS

Lisle's rich history lives on through this special area in town. The Museums at Lisle Station Park, located downtown Lisle near Village Hall, provide visitors the opportunity to learn about the heritage and culture of 19th century Northern Illinois. Settled in 1832, the life of this agricultural community soon revolved around the railroad depot and the area became known as Lisle Station. A cooperative effort of the Lisle Park District, Lisle Heritage Society, and the Village of Lisle, the Museum campus was created in 1978 to provide a home for the community's historic train depot. This partnership remains committed to the preservation of Lisle's rich heritage with the continuing development of the historical buildings and through exhibits and special programming. The roots and early culture of Lisle are still alive at The Museums at Lisle Station Park!
