    The Blue Earth County Historical Society (BECHS) was founded in 1901 for the semi-centennial celebration of both Mankato and Blue Earth County. In 1938, the R.D. Hubbard house was purchased by BECHS with money donated by Judge Lorin Cray for the purpose of buying or building a permanent museum. This was the first permanent location for BECHS and was operated as the museum until 1988 when BECHS moved to its current location. BECHS currently operates two locations, the History Center on the corner of Fifth and Warren street which is open year-round and the Historic R. D. Hubbard House open seasonally May through September.
