We want your history
The Edina Historical Society focuses on one topic: Edina.
Our collection of artifacts and archives tell the story of Edina, including its homes, people, neighborhoods, schools, city government, environment, organizations and businesses (to name just a few sub-topics.)
We do collect new items as well as old. The 2009 Edina High School yearbook is just as important as the first one issued in 1951. We document the first skyscraper as well as the first farm. And we want your story to add to those of the first Edina settlers.
We cannot order Edina history from a catalog. We depend on the public to donate items. We also actively seek out pieces of Edina history from residents before they are lost forever.
Topics being researched for upcoming exhibits: Edina and World War I The Immigrant Experience Keep the Faith - Edina Churches Politics in Edina Howe Houses Prohibition
EHS Wishlist: Morningside phone directories - We need phone books for Morningside addresses during the years Morningside was a separate village from Edina (1920 to 1966). Prohibition era (1920-1933 objects, photographs, clothing, distillery equipment
