Mission Statement

The Wright County Historical Society (WCHS) is a public 501(c) non-profit organization whose purpose is the location, discovery, collection and preservation of historical artifacts and records and the dissemination of knowledge about the history of Wright County and its relationship to the State of Minnesota.

Description

The Wright County Historical Society is located at the Wright County Heritage Center in Buffalo, Minnesota. It consists of nearly 8000 sq ft of gallery space and a cutting-edge genealogical research library. Our Archivist and librarians specialize in helping patron research their own ancestry using online and paper files, and are experts in Swedish (GenLine.com), French-Canadian (PRDH & Droin), and German heritage research, to name a few. WCHS also provides many presentation, event and lecture opportunities on a number of topics, including our famous History of Tractors series, our annual Dessert Extravaganza, an indoor Festival of Trees and much, much more. WCHS prides ourselves on providing as many hands-on, interactive exhibits as applicable, making it a great tour and family-friendly place to visit. We are open Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:30pm and admission to our galleries and library is free.
