Archives Move

The CNWHS Archives and Company Store have been located in Berwyn IL, a place we have called home for over 30 years.  We were very recently informed that the Berwyn building has been sold and we have to move the Archives by the end of December 2021.  The CNWHS Archives Building at the Illinois Railway Museum is about to start construction, and of course is nowhere near ready for us to move in.  We have found an interim home in Gilberts IL. 

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP US MOVE!  During the first two weekends in December, 4/5 and 11/12, we will need assistance to move boxes, ledgers and shelving.  Contact to sign up to help move.  File cabinets are set to be moved professionally the week of December 13.  If you are able to assist monetarily with the move, we would appreciate any donation you could provide.

We would like to thank the archives team for quickly coming up with a plan and immediately starting move preparation.  Due to the move, fulfillment of archive information requests will likely be delayed.  Company store orders placed after December 10 may experience shipping delays.
