Research Tools for You

The Museum now has all the issues of the Mille Lacs Country Times from August 1892 through 25 December 2008 on microfilm.

Social Media Policy

The MAHS Board has been developing a policy for the use of social media and will bring the 2017 edition to the April meeting for approval.  The Social Media Committee feels this policy defines how and by whom social media will be used on the MAHS's behalf.  You can read the complete policy by clicking here .  Thank you.

New Pictures

More pictures have been added to the Apron Lady album. 

Special Military Exhibit 

The family of Harold R. Anderson, the first casualty of World War II, has loaned the Museum an exhibit of his uniform, documents, trunk, pictures, and his mother's Gold Star. 

Under Construction

We decided it was time to make some changes to our exhibits over the winter. One thing led to another. . .and we're still working on them!

Our auditorium displays still include a large space devoted to the military service of local people.  The auditorium now also includes an exhibit about logging, lumber mills, and the shift to an agriculture based economy.  This is still very much under construction.  Please excuse our ongoing transition.

The Milaca Public School, country school and Normal School Exhibits are all in the Power House Room on the lower level.
