The DuPage County Historical Museum, formerly the Adams Memorial Library, is a building in Wheaton, Illinois, designed by Charles Sumner Frost. Dedicated in 1891, it was the first public library in Wheaton. It re-opened as the DuPage County Historical Museum in 1967. The museum seeks to "educate the general public through the collection, preservation, interpretation, and exhibition of materials which document the history of DuPage County and its relationship to Illinois and the nation, and to provide local history services for historical organizations and for scholarly endeavors," according to the website.
