This collection contains materials relating to the history of Carol Stream, IL and a sampling of records about other local places. All items are owned by the Carol Stream Historical Society.

Background Information
These items were compiled over several years by members and friends of the Carol Stream Historical Society. Carol Stream is a western suburb of Chicago, founded by Jay Stream in 1959. Before that time it was primarily farmland, and its farming heritage remains to this day. Jay Stream’s vision for the Village of Carol Stream, named for his daughter Carol, was to encourage growth of industry while also providing affordable residential housing.

The Carol Stream Historical Society is comprised of volunteers who share the passion of preserving and presenting the history of the community. The goal of the Carol Stream Historical Society is to preserve a remembrance of the dramatic development of the area from the days of being a prairie through conversion to a farming community until the formation and progress of the Village as it exists today.

Scope and Contents Note
This archival collection of the Carol Stream Historical Society exists to document and preserve the history of Carol Stream, including the settlement of the area before the incorporation of the Village in 1959. Special collecting emphasis is also given to historical items from the late 1800s and the 1950s which provide a historical context for what life was like in Carol Stream during these periods. The board of the Carol Stream Historical Society reserves the right to make appraisal decisions on whether donated items fit the criteria of the archival collection development policy. Those items which do not fit the criteria may be removed from the archives.

Carol Stream residents and outside researchers wishing to use the archives of the Carol Stream Historical Society must contact the Society and schedule an appointment to view materials.

The archive is arranged in 13 series: The Carol Stream Historical Society Records, Locations, People, Photographs, Publications, Services, Carol Stream Anniversaries, General Documents, Books, Oversized Materials, Memorabilia (objects and framed items), Scrapbooks, and Audio-Visual Materials.

The Carol Stream Historical Society Records trace the history, events, and meeting minutes of the Society. The Location series highlights important geographical landmarks and buildings in Carol Stream. The series on People features important names in Carol Stream history, as well as the annual Citizen of the Year awards celebration.

The Photographs series contains a variety of photos from a large span of years featuring locations, people, and events. Photographs can also be found in the following series and folders: CSHS Records (folder 2), Locations (folders 1 and 13), People (folders 2, 5, and 6), Anniversaries (folder 5), and in the Memorabilia and Scrapbook series.

Various Services in Carol Stream such as the school district, post office, library, etc. are represented next, followed by materials relating to Carol Stream Anniversaries, including memorabilia items. The General Documents series contains items which relate broadly to Carol Stream (maps, guides, etc.) and other nearby localities, including some historical documents which are the oldest pieces in the collection.

The Books series contains both editions of “Build Your Own Town,” the history of Carol Stream written by Jean Moore, and various other books of topical or historic import. The Oversized Materials and Memorabilia series include large or three-dimensional objects. Various Scrapbooks featuring articles and photos of Carol Stream history were compiled over the years by different people, and the Audio-Visual Materials series contains slides, VHS tapes, audiocassette tapes, and some digital media.
