Chisago County Historical Society has been collecting and sharing stories and artifacts about the county, located in the east-central region of Minnesota, for more than 74 years. Our first exhibits were displayed in Taylors Falls, MN in the stone building which today is located at the entrance of the popular Interstate Park. This building was constructed during 1920/21.

Take a few minutes to browse our website. You will find a lot of great information! Learn about our CCHS museums and exhibits, the Chisago County cemeteries, county history, community links, summer geocaching fun, and items in our gift shop. Many new indexs to our research library collection are now online!



Four new directors were approved by the members at the annual meeting on April 21, 2018. These are Curt Peterson of Almelund, Norm Peterson of Almelund, Cindy Johnson of Almelund, and returning former director and president Neil Gatzow of Wyoming, MN.

A minor adjustment in language of our bylaws was also approved which changed the number of directors from "12" to "up to 12." This allows for flexibility of the number of individuals who can serve on the CCHS board.

Several awards were presented by president Mark Strand, among these were the 2016 Historian on the Year to Mary Schmitz who was unable to receive her award and recognition at last years meeting. The 2017 Historian of the Year was presented to Charles (Chuck) Gramling. The board of directors created a new category of Volunteer of the Year for 2017. This was presented to Ruth and John "Butch" Quarn for their dedicated work and significant donations.

The historical society is now open four days a week! You can visit us on Tuesday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Thursday and Friday from noon until 4:00 pm. We added Saturday hours from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Stop by and visit us on any of these days!

Volunteers are needed to help the society expand into additional days and hours. Give us a call if you are interested in greeting visitors and directing them to our research library resources.

CCHS is also looking for individuals or groups who would like to sponsor their own collection or exhibit. Our idea is to help promote others who are partners in preserving the history of our area. Give us a call to discuss your ideas!
