The staff at Severson Dells have had the pleasure of hearing many great stories about Severson Dells. Many of these stories pre-date Severson Dells being designated a Forest Preserve.

We want to make sure these fantastic stories remain a part of the fabric of the nature center and that they are able to be read by future visitors to Severson Dells. One of the best ways to get to know a place is to get to know its stories.

Thank you in advance for sharing!
