The Chisago County Historical Society has been collecting
and sharing stories and artifacts about the county, located in
the east-central region of Minnesota, since the early 1900's.
Our first museum was the stone building built in 1920/21,
which still stands near the entrance to Interstate Park in
Taylors Falls, MN overlooking the scenic St. Croix river.
Take a few minutes to browse our website. You will find all
sorts of great information! Learn about our CCHS museums
and exhibits, the Chisago County cemeteries, our research
library collections, county history, community links,
summer geocaching fun, and new items in our gift shop.
