The new research room in the Depot Museum contains files on businesses, churches, schools, cities, families and more. Copies of local newspapers going back to the late 1800s can be read using the microfilm reader. This is a wonderful resource and we hope you come see what we have to offer.

Research is moving forward on this book. Volunteers have been researching County records, old maps and other records. They are finding the locations of all schools that operated in Aitkin County. Total count of schools so far is 274.
We are looking for photos, post cards, brochures and any other information pertaining to Resorts that were or still are operating in Aitkin County. Information received will be used in a future publication. All information/photos received will be placed in files. If you would like to keep the originals, we can scan them into our system and return them to you. Please help us with this project before the information is lost.
