The Winona County Historical Society was founded in 1935.

The Society is located in the former National Guard Armory building (1915) with the modern Laird Norton Addition. Designed by Joan Soranno of HGA, the addition and the armory are now known as the Winona County History Center. It offers 3 floors of exhibits, the Museum Shop, an extensive research library and archive, rental spaces and much more.

The Society owns two other museums in Winona County, The Bunnell House in Homer and The Rural Heritage Museum in Saint Charles.

An active community member, the Society offers a wide range of learning opportunities for all ages through its museums, research center, programs, classes and events. Learn more at winonahistory.org
