The Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS) is hosting its annual November New Member Month. The organization, which has been preserving and sharing the county’s history since 1936, has been a membership organization since its inception.
“Members are vital to the Morrison County Historical Society’s success,” said Mary Warner, executive director for the organization. “We count on them for their interest and encouragement, as well as the history so many of them share with us. Their contributions to the organization are invaluable.”
MCHS owns and operates The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum in Little Falls, MN. Its tens of thousands of collections items include three-dimensional artifacts, family files, past county newspapers, photographs, maps, and a wide variety of archival materials related to all aspects of Morrison County’s history. The collection also includes history of the area before the county was formed, from the history of Indigenous peoples to archaeology.
The Morrison County Historical Society invites new members to join the organization during the month of November. Those who establish new memberships in November will receive a free copy of a MCHS publication. They may choose one from the following: “Central Minnesota Remembers Vietnam,” “Sorting for History: Leaving a Legacy Through Your Possessions,” or “The Story Behind the Tat: Tattoo Art in Central Minnesota.”
MCHS members also receive 4 newsletters per year and discounts on events and select items from the museum’s gift shop.
