Discovering, preserving and bringing to life the fascinating history of northern Chisago County, Minnesota
Volunteer / Donate


Volunteers are the foundation of the North Chisago Historical Society. Volunteer and connect to those working to preserve our local heritage. If you have some time to share, there are any number of opportunities to learn and practice your skills in the company of wonderful people. Whether you are looking to help on an on-going or occasional basis, contact us today!


In addition to memberships, the historical society looks to individuals and businesses for annual support. This additional support funds our efforts in preservation, enables us to create exhibits and educational programs and to meet operational expenses. Donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Matching Gifts

Many employers will match the charitable contributions of their employees. Ask your company's HR department if such a program exists. If so, ask for a matching gift form, fill out your portion and enclose it with your contribution to NCHS. We'll take care of the rest.

Memorial Gifts

Remembering a friend or loved one who has died by making a donation in their name is an appropriate way to remember a special person while at the same time helping preserve our historical legacy for future generations.
