COVID-19 and BECHS History Center Update

Per Governor Tim Walz’s proclamation on March 25, the Blue Earth County Historical Society is closed through May 1. BECHS will regularly reassess this temporary closure.

As part of this closure, all public programs, tours, rentals and donations to the collection are also suspended.

The health and safety of our guests, staff, volunteers, interns, and community is our highest priority. BECHS is closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19. We will update this page with new information as it becomes available.
