The Streatorland Historical Society was originally started in 1975. The museum was opened in 1986 and has since received scores of visitors from around the country as well as great attendance from the Streator area. The museum houses memorabilia from some of its most famous citizens such as Clyde Tombaugh, George "Honey Boy" Evans, Clarence Mulford author of Hopalong Cassidy, Burton Baskin (Baskin-Robbins), Edward Plumb (Musical director for Walt Disney's Fantasia & Bambi) and a host of other items representing industry and memories of Streator's rich history.
