The Society’s Archives hold thousands of local historical records, photographs and materials of special interest to those researching family, building and house history in the Lake Minnetonka area. Knowledgeable volunteers retrieve materials for patrons and are happy to assist with research in our archives by appointment, or remotely by email or phone. Scans, photocopies and more extensive research is available for a fee.
Some photos from the Society's collection may be seen here.
