The Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS) has been serving as a repository for Morrison County’s varied history since 1936. Inside the organization’s home, The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum in Little Falls, MN, residents and visitors can find information on families, communities, businesses, and numerous other topics related to Morrison County. The museum also preserves thousands of three-dimensional artifacts associated with the county, showcasing them in exhibits, newsletter articles, and online at MCHS’s website.
MCHS has been a membership organization since its founding. According to Mary Warner, executive director of the organization, “Membership is open to the public, so anyone who has an interest in our mission of saving and sharing Morrison County’s history is welcome to become a member. While most of our members are from here in the county, we also have members as far away as Vermont and California.”
The Morrison County Historical Society invites new members to join the organization during the month of November 2018. Those who establish new memberships in November will receive a free copy of one MCHS publication. They may choose one from the following: “Little Falls Ravine: The Missing Landmark,” “The Legend of Hole in the Day,” Sorting for History: Leaving a Legacy Through Your Possessions,” or “East Versus West: Little Falls, Minnesota.”
MCHS members also receive 4 newsletters per year and discounts on events and select items from the museum’s gift shop.
