Tell us your story!

We at the History Center of Olmsted County know that history happens everyday, but seldom are we so very aware of it as we are now with the recent COVID-19 outbreak. The effect the disease has had on the world has been immediate, and only time will tell how long-lasting. As home to the stories of Olmsted County, it is our duty to keep a record of the events surrounding this outbreak as we experience them here. That's why it's so important we hear from you! Please take a few minutes to tell us the story of your COVID-19 experience. There's no time like the present, and we guarantee you future generations will be appreciative.

Dear Volunteers and Friends,

In response to the Minnesota Department of Health’s COVID-19 recommendations and Gov. Tim Walz's orders, the History Center of Olmsted County is now closed to the public.


As part of this closure, all public programs, tours, rentals are suspended.
History Center of Olmsted County will still be accepting donations via our website at
https://www.olmstedhistory.com/donate/monetary-donation.html.


The health and safety of our guests, staff, volunteers, interns, and community is our highest priority. HCOC is closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19. We will update our website with new information as it becomes available at https://www.olmstedhistory.com/

Please note:

Anticipating concern will ease by the end of April, we are moving forward with the suffrage exhibit and the Women's History Circle exhibit kickoff event, "The Onward March of Suffrage" planned for May 3rd.
