About SCHS


The Steele County Historical Society preserves Steele County's past, shares our county's stories and connects people with history in meaningful ways, for today and for tomorrow. Because history matters!

We're part of Minnesota's rich history. Established in 1949 to preserve the history of Steele County, we have grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious historical societies in the state. We play an important role in historic preservation, education and tourism; and provide the public with educational award-winning programs, exhibitions and events.

We owe it to future generations to be good stewards of the past. Join Today -- it's the best deal in history!
