Historic Elsah Foundation was formed by Dr. Charles Hosmer and Dr. Paul Williams - both were professors at Principia College - as a non-profit organization in 1971, its purpose to preserve and enhance the historic buildings, houses, architecture, and culture of the Village of Elsah, Illinois.  Elsah's listing on the National Register of Historic Places was also the work of Hosmer and Williams.  


Each year, Historic Elsah Foundation presents the Hosmer-Williams Lecture Series - four talks, which offer important insights to the rich historic significance of Elsah, or its surrounding areas, or our state.  The lectures are free and open to everyone.
