Imagine for a moment that you are looking up at the stars. Each and every twinkling star or swirling galaxy you see is a record of the past, a reflection of light traveling 186,000 miles per second to be visible only now. The night sky is a chronicle of the universe, a gift from the past that connects you with all that came before.

History is experienced in much the same way. Like the stars, history illuminates the present by connecting it to the past.

The Ramsey County Historical Society helps thousands of students, teachers, and community members – like you – connect with their past each yearWe thank you for your support of RCHS, which plays a critical role in linking the story of your community today with the stories of its past. Now, you can help RCHS preserve the history that will shine on into the future.

Your gift will help ensure the continuation of RCHS’s presentations, publications, and preservation program for years to come.

Twenty-five years from now, Gibbs Farm will still bear witness to thousands of students and teachers saying their temporary goodbyes to the digital world to wander 200 years into Minnesota’s past, into a world of buzzing insects, tall grasses, and delicate prairie flowers. A world that looks different on the surface, but becomes more and more familiar as it is explored.

Twenty-five years from now, the Ramsey County community will still find themselves curious. They will turn to RCHS’s Research Center to uncover the long-kept secrets hidden in plat maps, building permits, archives, and artifacts. They will turn to the Ramsey County History magazine to help recover the stories of people and places in danger of being lost to time. They will turn to RCHS to discover the events of the past that helped to shape their lives far into the future.

History isn’t just a gift from the past, it is a gift to the future.

Please consider making an investment in the future of Ramsey County today!
