Nicollet County Historical Society

During your visit to the Treaty Site History Center, you will explore the stories of Nicollet County’s first inhabitants- the Dakota people, explorers, traders, and settlers. The interaction between these people laid the historical groundwork for the signing of the 1851 Treaty of Traverse des Sioux, the subject of the Treaty Site's permanent exhibit. Once settlers began pouring into Nicollet County, fur trading was replaced by farming and soon little villages became bustling towns with booming businesses. The Treaty Site also takes a look at local agriculture, business, geology, and much more in its rotating exhibits featuring Nicollet County history.

Visit the exhibits Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Visit our website to learn more about your visit to the Nicollet County Historical Society - Treaty Site History Center.
