  • 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 a community museum open to the public and an archive of local Oswegoland history. The Oswegoland Heritage Association operates the museum in partnership with the Oswegoland Park District. Step in and take a step back in time.
