We are a small area historical society that had its beginnings in 1995. That year a few Lakeville residents gathered at City Hall and it became our meeting place until the old rectory at All Saints became available. We met there until  the Heritage Center was built and now call this wonderful location our home. Two large display areas and an office space are staffed by a dedicated  volunteer group of history buffs. Since we have limited storage space, our focus centers on the collection of images and small artifacts. Your donations of such articles are welcome.
