The Western Springs Historical Society (WSHS) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to instilling an appreciation of the village’s history in residents of all ages. A town of diverse architecture and rich history, the WSHS operates and manages the Village's archives, preservation projects and awards, Tower Museum, oral history program, and third grade history program. The Society's biennial House Walk is an inspirational home decor and design event that opens the doors of approximately six local homes for public viewing on one single day every other May. Proceeds from the event benefit the WSHS programs and museums.
