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.
