The Palatine Historical Society has put together an absolutely fantastic display in this pioneer home from 1873. Inside are many interesting things including a civil war letter from a soldier that is translated for the public and is an absolute tear jerker. This house also features an archive/library for public use. It is well worth the visit. The house is also said to be haunted and was investigated by several paranormal investigators. Next door is a museum for the pioneer firehouse.
