“Every new search is a voyage to the Indies, a quest for buried treasure, a journey to the end of the rainbow; and whether or not at the end there shall be turned up a pot of gold or merely a delightful volume,there are always wonders along the way.”
― Vincent Starrett, PennyWise & Book Foolish

The Carlson Collection, the Willard Larson Collection, the plat books of Isanti County, the historical business ledger and meeting minutes from the Union Mercantile Cooperative in Oxlip, the City of Cambridge minutes back to the late 1800’s, these are but a handful of the historical collections preserved at the Isanti County Historical Society. We are visited by traveling archaeologists and historians, wives, brothers, sisters and grandmothers having some interest or connection to Isanti County throughout the year. And, now, you will be able to search our collections without leaving your own home.
