Blue Earth County Historical Society

The Blue Earth County Historical Society employs many tactics in order to keep the history of the county alive for generations. With the help of volunteers, the exhibit hall is always filled with new displays. Walk in or take a group tour to see exhibits ranging from native american artifacts to the history of steamboats on the Minnesota River. Also, the Blue Earth County Historical Society has restored the late 19th century Hubbard House. Take a tour of the house in order to see home decor dating from the early 20th century.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
