The Aitkin County Historical Society has been compiling history on churches, schools, and riverboats in the county for a four volume set of books. Their first book, "Barns of Aitkin County, Minnesota" has been published and is now for sale at our Depot Museum, the McGrath Historical Society, and The McGregor Historical Society.
This book is a self guided photographic collection of yesteryear’s structures with some owners submitting an excerpt on their barn. Click the photo for description, price, and contact information.

The Minnesota Historical Societies exhibit “Minnesota Homefront” emphasizes the efforts of adults and youth back home during World War II to support the war effort. The exhibit includes artifacts and personal stories from the host community, in this case, Aitkin County. Minnesota Homefront will be on display at the McGregor Historical Society location (94th N. Maddy street) November 9, 2013 – January 5, 2014 (9am to 3pm daily). A number of special events are planned for the public during the display period.
