Statement of Purpose

The mission of Le Sueur County Historical Society is to collect and preserve the story of Le Sueur County, telling its history through historic sites, a research center, collections, exhibits and educational programming.


Dedicated in 1967, this National Register Building serves as the flagship museum of Le Sueur County Historical Society. The 1895 red brick schoolhouse overlooks a picturesque lake and holds a vast collection artifacts and original works of art.

The museum is currently closed for a makeover.

Current Exhibits and Upcoming Special Events

Current renovation preparation work is supported by grants from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Minnesota Historical Society. Building exterior restoration needs include the roof’s dutch gutter system, decorative fascia, mortar, brick and original window restoration. Interior projects include restoring the lobby and creating an art gallery for original art and exhibits about international artists inspired by the beautiful lakes and scenic landscapes of the southern Minnesota lakes region. The building also has undergone an engineer’s evaluation for HVAC system planning. The Society continues to seek grants to implement improvements and restore the museum building to its original grandeur.


The museum is currently closed.
