Giving Tuesday

Donations and membership dollars are critical for operating support, as are annual appropriations from Waseca County, Waseca County Cities, and Township Boards and our endowment earnings. Please celebrate and support the legacy of all people, places and things that tell the unique story of Waseca county, past, present, and future. Thank you!

Balcony Exhibit: Where the Big Woods Meet the Prairie, a Timeline of Unique Stories
