The Dakota County Historical Society seeks new board members for the 2023 calendar year. Interested community members can reach out to the Lawshe Museum at 651-552-7548 to ask questions, or they can complete a board interest statement via the Dakota County Historical Society website. Interested individuals should submit a statement of interest form by Friday, Dec. 9.
The board of trustees is made up of volunteers who play a vital role in setting organizational policy and helping to preserve, interpret and promote the history of Dakota County. Each board member serves a two-year term and can serve a maximum of three consecutive terms for the organization. As a nonprofit organization, Dakota County Historical Society helps make Dakota County history available and accessible to all.
“This is an exciting time for DCHS as we finalize the renovations of the Lawshe Museum in South St. Paul and install new exhibits in the space," said DCHS Executive Director Matt Carter. “The organization is also working on the George Daniels Project at the LeDuc Estate that will explore Dakota County and Minnesota's African American history through the site. Additional partnerships with local history organizations within Dakota County have helped ensure our all of the county's history is preserved."
