About Us

Engaging exhibits that appeal to adults and kids on historical topics relevant to today. Great events - such as swing dance, exhibit openings, author talks, monthly Kids Kraft program, Holiday events, and more. Book a speaker for your event! The extensive research library is a boon to genealogists, teachers, students, authors, and anyone with an interest in local history and events. We are happy to assist you with your research. Our education programs are designed to meet MN Standards for Teaching benchmarks as well as actively engage students in learning. Many fun volunteer opportunities (one-time, occasional and regular) are available. SCHS members support preservation of history and receive outstanding benefits. Check us out - we're not your grandma's historical society. There is something for all ages and interests at SCHS!
