West Chicago City Museum

132 Main Street, West Chicago, IL 60185

The West Chicago City Museum occupies the former Turner Town Hall in West Chicago. Turner Town Hall originally functioned as the first Village Hall of West Chicago, providing police and fire control services to the community. Aside from its town safety functions, the hall also provided a meeting place for citizens of the village and hosted a local museum. The town hall maintained its functions until 1976 when it was re-designated the West Chicago City Museum. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
