Please Support Our Climate-Controlled Storage Project
We have raised over
$75,000 of the $200,000 needed!

The Norman County Historical Society was established in 1947 by some forward-thinking members who knew the value of preserving the history of our small rural Minnesota county. From its early beginnings, the goal was to preserve, maintain, and promote the history of Norman County. Due to the size of our collection, we urgently need additional climate-controlled storage for our more fragile artifacts. Photos, papers, and clothing are vital items we are preserving for future generations. These items must be maintained in a climate-controlled environment. Our only building that is climate-controlled is the museum. It is bursting at the seams with treasures from the past. We need your help to continue preserving the history of the County. Please consider a donation to make this happen. We also are prepared to accept “Gifts of Commodities“. If you are interested in this option for giving, please contact us at 218-784-6409.
