2012 marked 85 years since the Roseau County Historical Society was organized in April 1927. The intent was to  collect, preserve and disseminate the history of Roseau County, Minnesota.  The Historical Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization. The organization displays artifacts from the present and the past that represent the history of the county as well as hosts traveling exhibits at the museum. The Historical Society also has an extensive research center.

The Roseau County Historical Society is funded by a county allocation, memberships, donations, research, and an annual fund drive. Membership entitles you to many things and you become a vital part of the society's success.

The historical society is collecting information about county music right now. We are seeking information on any musicians or bands that have played in the county, as well as any places dances or music has been played, past and present, please contact the museum at 218-463-1918.

Present exhibits include Electrifying Roseau County, immigration, Marvin Windows,  military, local Ojibwa,  natural history, including the P.O. Fryklund egg collection.

Check out the rest of the Historical Society's  upcoming events.
