The mission of the Eagan Historical Society is to collect and preserve Eagan artifacts, images and information for display and research purposes for the good of the community and for future generations. The Society maintains interpretive displays at City facilities and historical markers throughout Eagan.
The Eagan Historical Society is made up of community members who share an interest in preserving and sharing the history of the community.
Membership is open to everyone. There is no fee for membership and no requirements for meeting attendance. Meetings are typically held on the second Tuesday of the month at Eagan City Hall.
The Historical Society creates and manages historic displays, available for viewing at a variety of City buildings including Eagan Municipal Center and the 1914 Town Hall Museum. Open Houses are scheduled several times each year. Event dates are posted on the events calendar.
Periodically, the Eagan Historical Society also hosts author talks, leads historic tours, and provides other events related to Eagan History. More information will be posted as events are planned.
The City of Eagan maintains a repository of historical documents and assets that can be accessed by the public. Trained volunteers with the Eagan Historical Society assist with digitizing and archiving photos, newspaper clippings, and documents so that they can be preserved and referenced in the future. Items are continuously added to the repository, so be sure to check back often. To explore historical documents, click the button below.
