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.

We had a very successful exhibit at the Mille Lacs County Fair, August 6-9. “Mukluks to Motors: The History of Transportation in Mille Lacs County” was seen by 419 people. We had interesting conversations with our visitors and with the volunteers from Mille Lacs Lake Historical Society and Mille Lacs County Historical Society. Lots of great connections, confirming the fact that “local history is where we live!”
Many thanks to John and Mark Boggs, Leah (Pearson) Kelton, and Connie Herges for providing our best ever Gateway to the Northland parade unit on June 18. The theme was Hollywood Movies, and who better to represent the historical society but our home grown movie star Belle Bennett? John provided the car, driven by Mark, Connie Herges recreated Belle’s Hollywood Blvd star, and Leah Kelton portrayed Belle herself.
