Other Historical Preservation Organizations:

Within Chisago County you will find other organizations that collect and preserve the rich history of this area.

The preservation movement spans a wide range of interests pursued by these groups. While the primary goal is universal, the specific objectives vary among these different organizations.

Although they are not financially connected with the Chisago County Historical Society, these groups share in the ongoing work needed to collect, display, and educate school children and adults regarding the lives and artifacts from the past.

On this page you will find the names and contact information for these groups.  Some of the names may be familiar to  you because many individuals have also  served as board members or officers of  the CCHS. Click the [Link] buttons to  see more details about each society.
