Historical Society Seeks Volunteer Board Members

    January 17th, 2020

    Mankato, MN – The Blue Earth County Historical Society is currently seeking candidates to fill open seats on the Board of Trustees beginning March 2020. Monthly board meetings are held the 4th Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. All openings are for a three-year term ending March 2023. Applications are due by January 31, 2020 to the History Center.

    The Board consists of members representing Blue Earth County and is currently seeking individuals strong in one or more of the following areas: financial management, business management, development and/or fundraising. Previous non-profit Board experience preferred, but not required.

    The Historical Society will be making some major changes in the next few years including building expansion which means launching a Capital Campaign. This is an exciting time for the Historical Society but, there is much work ahead to achieve our goals.

    Founded in 1901, the Blue Earth County Historical Society is a vibrant community cultural heritage non-profit charged with the responsibility to preserve, protect and present the history of Blue Earth County. The Historical Society operates two facilities in Mankato: the History Center and Museum at 424 Warren Street and the Historic R.D. Hubbard House at 606 South Broad Street.
