Lilacia Park, once home to Colonel William R. Plum's lilac garden, is internationally known for its landscaping and annual Lilac Time Festival.
The Dr. William LeRoy House on Main Street was built in 1881 with an Italianate architectural style. The house eventually became the studio of Harold Gray, the originator of the Little Orphan Annie cartoon strip.
The Victorian Cottage Museum is a restored home that features rooms furnished with Victorian artifacts that exemplify the lifestyle of the emerging middle class during the late nineteenth century.
The restored Sheldon Peck Homestead was constructed around 1839 and is recognized as the oldest house in Lombard. The farmhouse was home to the Peck family, the first school in the area, a stop on the Underground Railroad, and a place of business for Peck, a portraitist from the mid-nineteenth century.
