Now is your chance to be a part of history … to make history … to celebrate history … all in one fell swoop! The Northfield Historical Society is launching its “1,000 Members Campaign” and invites you to play a vital role in helping us achieve our goal of 1,000 members. Please join us by becoming a member of the Northfield Historical Society today.

For the past 35 years, the Northfield Historical Society has been dedicated to preserving, interpreting and honoring the unique history of Northfield, Minnesota, and the surrounding region. The Society and its Museum Store, located on the original site of First National Bank of Northfield where the Jesse James gang was defeated, offer a wide array of information, interpretive presentations, exhibits, memorabilia and more to keep our history alive. With roots in America’s bicentennial and strong ties to the Defeat of Jesse James Days, the Northfield Historical Society has long been recognized for its commitment to celebrating history and creating opportunities for Northfielders and visiting guests alike to honor our heritage and note the milestones of our past that have made a difference in our world.
