One of the X that.... construction needs to follow the subject-verb number agreement with X. So if X is plural , the verb following "that" should be plural. The original sentence uses singular "makes" and is thus incorrect.

A. makes up the Cedar Falls Historical Society in Iowa is
Incorrect as mentioned above.

B. make up the Cedar Falls Historical Society in Iowa are
Incorrect. "are" should be " is" to go with "one of .."

C. make up the Cedar Falls Historical Society in Iowa is
Correct.

D. makes up the Cedar Falls Historical Society in Iowa are
Incorrect.

E. make the Cedar Falls Historical Society in Iowa is
Incorrect. Illogical meaning. One of X that make Cedar Falls?? It means that the Cedar Falls Society is made up on this thing (X). This not the intended meaning of the sentence.

Ans is C: One of the Noun always plural + that + Plural Verb = make BCE selected
E- illogical meaning : making it historical :)
B is out because of are, since one is singular. so in C use of is = perfect.
