The Lisle Park District, Lisle Heritage Society and the Village of Lisle created the museum to preserve the buildings and teach visitors about the cultural history of the town. The museum features four buildings and a retired train car.

Group meetings and private functions can be held in the Beaubien Tavern or Netzley-Yender House for an hourly fee. Blacksmithing classes are held on a seasonal basis.
The Kiwanis Club of Lisle has been active over the years under the Kiwanis motto of “We Build” –…More and build the club has done. The club was instrumental in starting the Lisle Park District with charter member Hank VanKampen originating the first park in Lisle that was named after Kiwanis member Bob Connelly, hence Connelly Park. Kiwanis members also assisted in the development of the playground at Steeple Run School, provided shop equipment at the Lisle Junior High School, provided reading area and materials at the Lisle Library, provided reading materials to the Lisle Elementary schools, supported the expansion of the Lisle Senior High School, and were active in the development and management of the “Eyes to the Skies” festival. More important than the material development over the years, the Lisle Kiwanis Club has been working to ensure the leaders of the future are being developed through ongoing sponsorship of the Lisle Senior High “Key Club”, Benedictine University’s “Circle K Club”, sponsor student leadership through development at the “Hugh O’Brien Leadership Foundation”, and support various Lisle Senior High School attendance in leadership programs in band, cheerleading, pom squads, math club, and other events.
In addition to leadership development, the Kiwanis Club of Lisle provides resources to those in need of spirit enhancement. We provide food baskets during the year-end holidays, we provide a holiday party with Santa for children 12 and under, we provide an autumn picnic in conjunction with the Lisle Park District, and we assist families in need throughout the year.
The Kiwanis Club of Lisle is proud of its heritage and looks forward to being able to continue to service the community of Lisle. Community leaders and citizens that were interested in the betterment of the community founded the club. That focus has not changed in the years since the club’s beginning. The club continues to welcome potential members to visit the meetings each Wednesday at the Lisle Hilton.
