How do I donate an object, document or other historical artifact to ICHS?
We are thrilled to hear that you are considering donating a treasured artifact to the historical society. When deciding whether or not to accept an item, we first consider whether we have something like it in our collection already, and what value it casts on the history of Isanti County. We have limited space in our building, and must make many tough decisions about what we can keep ourselves. We also ask: 1) Based on our Mission Statement, what significance does this item have to Isanti County? 2) Was the item manufactured in Isanti County? If so, what was the name of the manufacturer? 3) What is the condition of the item? 4) Is the donating party able to provide some history for the item? We recommend that you speak with Ruth Anderson at ICHS regarding your item. You can do this by calling 763-689-4229 on Tuesdays or sending an email to email@example.com .

What types of items can I donate to ICHS?
We accept a wide variety of items at the historical society. Items that are easiest for us to store include photographs and family histories, but if we feel that a large item is also valuable for our members, we will accept that on a case-by-case basis. We recommend that you speak with Ruth Anderson at ICHS regarding your item. You can do this by calling 763-689-4229 on Tuesdays or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .

What youth camps do you conduct?

When and where do you hold your board meetings?

Unless you request to be added to the agenda 2 weeks ahead of time, we will expect that all you intend to do is listen and observe.
