The Koochiching County Historical Society maintains a large and important collection of artifacts and historical materials relating to Koochiching County, north central Minnesota and the southern border region of northwestern Ontario.

Our Museum Galleries feature 10,000 years of Borderland history. Exhibits document the northern Minnesota region including Native history and culture, European settlement, and the exploitation of natural resources through the fur trade to modern forestry.

The Bronko Nagurski Museum is a lasting tribute to this 1930's sports legend. This is this only museum in America dedicated to this All American Minnesota Gopher and NFL Hall of Famer Chicago Bear.

As any sportsperson knows, Bronko Nagurski may have been the greatest football player of all time.
