 Local History Is Where We Live! 

Welcome to the Milaca Area Historical Society and the Milaca Museum – gathering, caring for and interpreting the objects and stories of central Mille Lacs County’s past.

Explore our website and visit our FREE museum and research room.

 Remodeling Done!

The Museum's reference room was in need of an update, and once the museum closed in November the work began.   The hung ceiling was removed, and old carpet and tile were taken out.  The work is now completed. Please come see the remodeled research room as well as the other updates to the Museum. It would be a good time to look at the complete set of Mille Lacs County Times on microfilm.

Celebrating 10 Years in the WPA Building

Mark your calendars for the evening of Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Yvonne Cory, the "Apron Lady" will present an interesting program on vintage aprons. She will bring her collection of vintage aprons and share their histories and stories. Presentation will begin at 6:30 pm in the Conference Room at Milaca City Hall.

Come to the Museum to see local aprons displayed and read the stories of women who wore them.  

Come see us at the Fair!

1917 – County Enters WW I

We are once again presenting, along with Mille Lacs County History alliance colleagues (Mille Lacs County Historical Society and Mille Lacs Lake Historical Society) the Heritage Building. We’ll be looking at what was happening in Mille Lacs County and the world 100 years ago including

  • local men who were called up in the military draft.
  • how did war in Europe affect day to day life in Mille Lacs County.
  • and what was life like in 1917 Mille Lacs County.

Come see us at the Mille Lacs County Fair at the County Fair Grounds in Princeton, August 9 to the 13!
