Today is History. Live it, save it, share it.
Since its founding in 1936, the Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS) has been dedicated to the history of ALL of the county's residents, from those who live the quietest of lives to those whose names become headlines. Further, the organization believes that all who are interested in Morrison County's history be able to access it, regardless of income level, which is why admission to MCHS's home, The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum, is free. This is made possible through the generous support of members, donors, an allotment from Morrison County, and other patrons.
Each person who has passed through Morrison County has added a piece to its history. Through a willingness to share that history, they have built MCHS's large artifact and archival collection. MCHS cares for this collection to the best of its ability and shares it with the public, via newsletter articles, research services, the website, exhibits, and programs.
While history is often considered to be about people and events long past, MCHS sees history as a continual process, with the documentation of current happenings being as important as those that occurred 100 or more years ago.
The Morrison County Historical Society's ethos can be summed up as: "Today is History. Live it, save it, share it." We encourage you to do the same.

The Morrison County Historical Society has been in existence since 1936. We’ve been collecting for seventy-one years. I’ve only been with the Society for eleven years and while you might think that would be enough time to get to know everything in our collections, it isn’t. I was researching the…
Lindbergh Drive South, a.k.a. County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 52, is under construction between Lindbergh State Park and the Weyerhaeuser Museum. That means you’re going to run into some rough road and heavy equipment if you try to come down Lindbergh Drive from Little Falls. While we’ve been assured by…
