Roseau County Historical Society Annual Fund Drive Information
2019-2020 FUND DRIVE
2020 marks the 125th anniversary of Roseau County’s creation and the 93rd anniversary of the establishment of the Roseau County Historical Society. In April 1927, a group of men met to consider forming a county historical society. Steps were then taken to establish the historical society whose purpose would be to collect, preserve, and share the history of Roseau County. The collection of P. O. Fryklund was the basis of the original museum. The society continued to grow the collection and accepted donations related to the history of the county.
Your donation this year will help us to continue sharing the history of Roseau County to the nearly 7,000 yearly visitors. Your support will help touch up older exhibit displays, build new exhibits, and create colorful signage (done in-house) for the new museum design.

2017-2018 FUND DRIVE
2016-2017 FUND DRIVE
Our goal for 2016-17 Annual Fund Drive is to raise $9,900. This amount would recover the $2,000 we missed last year and surpass the highest total ever raised by the Roseau County Historical Society Annual Fund Drive.
The Programming Committee met and looked at future programming that we could bring to you, our patrons and county residents. With your help, 2017 could bring some very exciting programs, such as walking tours, cemetery walks, luncheons, musical programs, and picnics, to name a few great ideas.
2015-2016 FUND DRIVE
Your support helps create and tell the history of Roseau County. Through your donations, we have created new floor exhibits and restarted the publication of the newsletter. In 2016, we are changing focus from WWII and rationing to Innovators, Inventors and Entrepreneurs which means new exhibits.
As we continue to grow, our financial needs grow. With your support, we are able to continue creating new exhibits for the museum. There is much to do, and so much potential for adding exhibits to tell the rich history of Roseau County.
