Chisago County Historical Society has been collecting and sharing stories and artifacts about the county, located in the east-central region of Minnesota, for more than 74 years. Our first exhibits were displayed in Taylors Falls, MN in the stone building which today is located at the entrance of the popular Interstate Park. This building was constructed during 1920/21.

Take a few minutes to browse our website. You will find a lot of great information! Learn about our CCHS museums and exhibits, the Chisago County cemeteries, county history, community links, summer geocaching fun, and items in our gift shop. Many new indexs to our research library collection are now online!


On August 22nd, 2017 CCHS was open for business at our new location in downtown Lindstrom, MN! Our physical address is
12785 Lake Blvd, formerly the Gordy's Cards & Gifts shop.

We stirred up a lot of dust during the move but all the shelves and reference materials are availabe for your use. WiFi access is up and running and new work stations and a spacious conference table are also available.

Our phone number (651) 257-5310 and the PO Box 146 mailing address have remained the same.

In November CCHS will begin the work needed to expand into our adjoining space that previously was home to Gordy's Cards & Gifts. Minor remodeling to create a small sales area and a thorough carpet cleaning will be the first orders of business. The next steps will include planning and setting up history displays. With all the summer festivals and events behind us, the directors, staff, and volunteers will now focus on this next phase during the fall and winter months.

CCHS will continue to be open Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week from noon until 4:00 pm. Volunteers are needed to expand to additional days and hours. Give us a call if you are interested in greeting visitors and directing them to our research library resources.
