When you are traveling in the Mississippi River Valley, we invite you to visit the Goodhue County Historical Society in Red Wing, Minnesota. Whether you are interested in pottery or shoes, archaeology or immigration, you will find something of interest for the whole family.


Step back in time when you view pre-historic artifacts in the archaeology room. Sit in a desk in the rural schoolroom interior imageand imagine what it was like to be a student in the early 1900s. See if you can identify a use for the many tools displayed in the agricultural room. Learn about the discovery of "puffed grains" by a local inventor and much more.

Genealogists, scholars, and students alike can discover a wealth of resources in our research library. Our computerized database makes it possible to find information on your ancestors. Our collection also includes more than 16,000 historic photographs, which may be reproduced on request.

A wide variety of programs, exhibits, and events are offered regularly. D.A.S.H., a history program for middle-school students, and Multicultural Day Camp are offered annually. Tours can be arranged for groups of children or adults. The county's history comes alive in the pages of our quarterly journal, Goodhue County Historical News, which is a benefit of membership.

Our museum store offers educational toys, children's books, jewelry, postcards, note cards, and other gifts related to county history as well as a wealth of excellent adult books, many of them written by local authors.

Please join us in preserving history!
