  • The Little White School Museum Welcomes You

    The Little White School Museum located at 72 Polk Street in downtown Oswego, IL holds the rich history of the community and reflects the spirit of its early residents. Built as a church in 1850, then used as a school until the mid 1960’s, the building is now owned by the Oswegoland Park District. The Oswegoland Heritage Association operates the museum which is open to the public and is an archive of local Oswegoland history. Step in and take a step back in time.
