Minster Historical Society and Museum

Willkommen!

The Minster Historical Society collects, preserves, interprets, and shares the history of Minster, the surrounding area, and  its people through exhibits, programs, and publications.

Established in 1976, the Minster Historical Society has been telling Minster’s story for more than forty years. Today the Society is more committed than ever to providing programs for the widest and most diverse audience possible. History is important to the people of Minster, and we’re dedicated to preserving our heritage for generations to come.

The Board of Directors thanks all the many people who have contributed not only financially, but with donations of family histories, stories and artifacts.

Thank you for visiting our website. After learning more about the Minster Historical Society, it is hoped that you will join in this continuing and historically significant endeavor.
