Description

The Cass County, MN Museum & Historical Society provides an extensive American Indian collection that highlights the strong connection with Leech Lake Reservation. This includes information and exhibits on cultural practices such as canoe building, maple sap harvesting, and wild ricing. Primary exhibits feature about Ojibwe Indians, fur traders, as well as “hands-on” exhibits in their pioneer Huset School. Within their researching center, they offer a wide variety of information including indexes of obituaries (1898-1904), county newspapers ranging from 1894 to the present, village histories, and photography, with a requirement fee of ten dollars. Recently, the museum has compiled a new list of past postmasters, early county divorces (1898-1906), box holders at Ah-Gwah-Ching and family histories in the Longville Centennial book. Other available publications they have access to are local history books about Boy River, Federal Dam, Remer and Sugar Point. They too have access to finding a grave site based on their compiled cemetery data within their county.
