    Lake Benton Historical Society

    The first meeting of the Lake Benton Area Historical Society was held September 4, 1996. The mission statement of the society is "the collection, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge about the history of the Lake Benton area and to relate the history to that of the State of Minnesota.?

    The society became a member of the Minnesota Historical Society in May, 1997. Groundbreaking ceremonies of the ?The Heritage and Windpower Learning Center of Southwestern Minnesota? were held June 17, 2000. Dedication of the building was held on October 13, 2001. Our beautiful museum is located at 106 South Center Street, Lake Benton.
