The Little Chute Historical Society was officially organized in 2000 and began its work in January 2001. The bylaws were adopted in September of that year and approved by the IRS as a non-profit organization.
The purpose of the Society is to gather and preserve all historical data and artifacts from the Village of Little Chute. In addition, it will gather the family histories of every family that lives and/or lived in Little Chute. Further, the Society will work to educate and assist any persons who are interested in gathering this data.
The Little Chute Historical Society implements and maintains the museum displays in the Van Asten Visitor Center, where it also has work space and archive storage.
The annual membership fee is only $12.00 for individuals and $18.00 for families. Lifetime membership is $100 per person. If you are interested in joining and working with us, please complete the printable membership application.
Our Society is interested in hearing from individuals and families who would like to donate historical artifacts, documents, and photographs for potential use in the Van Asten Visitor Center.
The Little Chute Historical Society meets regularly on the third Monday of each month (except July) at 5:30 pm at the Little Chute Windmill. Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome.
The Little Chute Historical Society is a member of the Wisconsin Council for Local History, a branch of the Wisconsin Historical Society that is dedicated to assisting the efforts of local historical societies around the state. Membership is open to anyone interested in helping to achieve the Society goals.
