Founded in 1926, the Olmsted County Historical Society dba the History Center of Olmsted County is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization governed by members via a Board of Director. We collect an array of materials that document the history of Olmsted County and Southeastern Minnesota more broadly. Our mission is to give people of all ages and backgrounds access and opportunity to learn about the past through interpretive programs and exhibits, research, publications and events.
We are open Tuesday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm.
