Coming Soon

La Grange Courthouse Square Through Time Interactive Project

Discover La Grange’s downtown district through the decades using maps and photographs, as well as building and business histories. This interactive touchscreen project will be an ongoing project available only in the Museum and Archives. We invite you to look for family businesses or just travel down memory lane.

How You Can Help
We are looking for more photographs of both the exterior and interior of downtown buildings. We can accept scanned images if you prefer not to donate your old photos. We are also looking for personal stories about La Grange businesses. Email

100 Years of La Grange Hospitals
Dr. Frank J. Guenther established La Grange’s first hospital in late 1920. We will take a look at how hospital care in the various facilities has changed in La Grange during the ensuing century. COVID-19 has postponed the opening to some time in 2021.

How You Can Help
We are looking for more exterior and interior photos of the Guenther hospital and Fayette Memorial Hospital, as well as stories from medical staff and artifacts like uniforms and old medical equipment. Email
