About Us


The purpose of the Society is to collect, preserve and disseminate genealogical and historical material, especially that which pertains to Christian County and make it available to the public for research. The society's research collection has been combined with the collection of the Christian County Historical Society and is housed in the Pence Building on the grounds of the Historical Society in Taylorville, Illinois. The society's logo depicts the two major founding industries of the county, mining and farming.

CCGS and the CCGS Library are located at the Christian County Historical Society's Pence Building, 325 Abe's Way Taylorville, IL 62568.
