Mission Statement

The purpose of the Historical Society shall be the collection, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge about the history of Cook County and to relate it to the history of the State of Minnesota.

Description

Founded in 1924, the Cook County Historical Society operates five buildings: the Historical Society Museum (the 1896 Lightkeeper's House) since 1966; the Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery (JHP Art Gallery); St. Francis Xavier Chippewa City Church; Bally Blacksmith Shop; and a 1930s fish house replica. Alongside the fish house is the 35’ fishing tug, Neegee, built in 1935 in Grand Marais. All sites are free to the public serving all of Cook County as well as our visitors. Other programs include: the Passport to the Past program which is intended to educate students and visitors about local history, as well as monthly historical presentations/events. A biannual newsletter the Overlook, as well as our monthly E-Newsletter, reaches more than 400 members and a growing social media following.
