History of us


On May 9, 1975, the Matteson Historical Society was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization, the outgrowth of the Village’s Bicentennial Committee. Continuing the emphasis of the Bicentennial, the Society’s purpose is to bring together those people in Matteson and the surrounding areas who are interested in history and to preserve and collect written and printed materials, artifacts, and memorabilia of all kinds illustrative of the local history and heritage.
