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 50 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!
