The Roseau County Historical Society is dedicated to the collection, preservation and exhibition of the Roseau County heritage.
The Society locates and collects any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of Roseau County.
Over the years, printed materials, manuscripts, pictures, videos, American Indian artifacts, and personal or public items illustrative of life, conditions, events, or activities from throughout the county have been gathered to help illustrate the history of Roseau County.
Many of these items are on display at the Roseau County Historical Museum and Interpretive Center in Roseau. The exhibits offer new and long time residents, young people, and visitors the opportunity to remember or learn the rich history of Roseau County. From early geological formation, native and immigrant exploration and settlement, to regional developments in population, education, religion, art, science, agriculture, manufacturing and trade, our heritage is preserved at the Museum and Interpretive Center.
The work of the Society is not limited to the museum. While gathering county historical information, the Society seeks opportunities to share this history with others.
Throughout the year the Society sponsors meetings, lectures, newspaper articles and tours. Many individuals utilize the society’s vast collections as resources for researching family histories, preparing educational papers, or simply reliving a bit of yesterday.
An ongoing project for the County of Clover Society is the marking of cemeteries, Indian villages, sites, and trails throughout North Star County.
