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.
Our display rooms are now open from 9 a.m. - noon every Monday or by appointment. Please call 952/985-4680 to arrange a time. Call at least a week ahead of time request.
"In recognition of the responsibility to past and future generations, the mission of the Lakeville Area Historical Society shall be to document, collect, preserve and teach the history of the Lakeville area."
