Description

The Isanti County Historical Society promotes Isanti County history by funding research, programming, outreach, education and displays. Our vision is to be a visible organization that makes Isanti County history alive and accessible to a diverse audience.

We are located in the ICHS Heritage Center which contains a museum, office for research, archive and artifact storage, a community hall and kitchen. On the grounds is a partially restored late 1800's log cabin.

History

The Isanti County Historical Society was established on November 16, 1964 in Braham, Minnesota by an original committee of eight persons. ICHS became an official organization of Isanti County and an affiliate of the Minnesota Historical Society on April 20, 1965.

2005 will mark its 40th year of service to Isanti County and will be celebrated with special events during the year.
