There are over 37,000 artifact records, 17,000 photographs, 350,000 archived records, all constantly being indexed and updated for website access. Members support WCHS annually from all over.

The Waseca County Historical Society was organized in 1938. We just celebrated 75 years of keeping Waseca County history safe and accessible. WCHS benefits from 8 endowment funds held by the Waseca Area Foundation, part of the Minnesota Philanthropy Partners.
