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, from permanent to temporary residents.
-- Admission to The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum is free so that all can have access to Morrison County's history.
-- MCHS is committed to documenting not only events & people long past but contemporary events & people for future study.
-- MCHS's ethos can be summed up as: "Today is History. Live it, save it, share it." We encourage you to do the same.
