Picturing the Past With ... the St. Charles History Museum

The McCornack Gas Station building, now home to the St. Charles History Museum, has been sitting on the corner of Main Street and Third Avenue for the past 90 years.
The McCornack Gas Station building, now home to the St. Charles History Museum, has been sitting on the corner of Main Street and Third Avenue for the past 90 years.

"Serving Gas to Preserving History" will explore the connected stories and histories of the McCornack Gas Station and the St. Charles History Museum.

Through the 90 years of sitting on the corner of Main Street and Third Avenue the McCornack Gas Station building has seen many changes, including ownership and name changes. Though serving the community a little differently from a gas station, the building has been home to the St. Charles History Museum since 2001.

Many of St. Charles' most influential people set up the St. Charles Historical Society 85 years ago and called for the community to take part in their own history.

This exhibit will celebrate the two separate enterprises, while also bringing together the history they now share in serving the community.
