In 1984, the state of Illinois passed the County Historic Preservation Act, giving counties the authority to establish historic preservation commissions.
The Act called upon counties to:
- Identify, protect, preserve, and restore features of historic significance
- Foster educational interest and pride in the past
- Promote economic development through historic tourism
- Insure harmonious development

The McHenry County Historic Preservation Commission meets every first Wednesday of each month, except July and December, at 6:30 p.m. at the Office of Planning and Development, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock, Illinois 60098 and the public is encouraged to attend.
