The society maintains three historic buildings in Lombard, a Chicago suburb. The Victorian Cottage Museum occupies a house built in 1882. It's designed to recreate a middle-class household of that era, and also serves as the society headquarters. The Carriage House on the same property hosts special exhibits and a museum shop. The Sheldon Peck Homestead at 355 E Parkside was built in 1839 and served as a location on the Underground Railroad.
