Thank you so much for considering joining the Nicollet County Historical Society. Giving your support through a membership purchase makes it possible for the NCHS to provide fun and educational learning experiences not just for you and your family, but to all Nicollet County residents and visitors. Membership dues and all other donations go directly to enhancing the reach and impact of NCHS collection, programs, and exhibits at three sites – and to expand those services to new audiences. Your willingness to contribute signifies your understanding of the importance in protecting, preserving, and promoting our shared past. We sincerely appreciate your help.
