The Chisago County Historical Society has set five "caches" for you to discover this summer. This project was conceived and funded by a grant awarded to our member and volunteer Darcy Pinotti of Harris, MN.

To view the list of CCHS caches that were set, click the geocache logo at the top left. You will find a "mini history lesson" in our caches at each site.

If you are not familiar with this activity, view the 2-minute video by clicking either one of the two YouTube logo icons to the left.
The CCHS Exhibits and Resources:
The historical society has two locations within Chisago County. Our office, research library and museum are now combined and conveniently located in downtown Lindstrom, MN. We also manage the History Exhibits building on the county fairgrounds in Rush City, MN.

Staff and volunteers also participate in many local festivals to help promote history focused education and activities. CCHS maintains a number of permanent displays in the county government center located in Center City, MN.

The historical society does not offerlocal area tours. Recently a number of towns have developed self-guided walking tours. Free maps are available at city hall. Swedish Circle Tours does provide guided tour service for visiting groups.

In addition, there are four chambers of commerce within Chisago County. They are an excellent resource to learn about tours, sight seeing, festivals, and other area attractions. Links to their websites are listed below.

CCHS does participate in a variety of local festivals and events where we showcase artifacts, cultural items, and historical themes. The major events include the Chisago County Fair in Rush City, the Annual Threshing Festival at Palmdale, and the Apple Festival in Almelund. The society also participates in smaller events when staffing and timing make our attendance possible. Please visit our Upcoming Events page for our schedule.
