Lake of the Woods County Museum

A local history museum that connects visitors with the area’s colorful past from geology and natural history, to early peoples, fur trade, settlement and the development of the fishing, logging, farming, pharmaceutical and tourism industries. Exhibits also capture significant events that helped to shape the county – the Great Forest Fire of 1910, the construction of the International Bridge from Baudette, Minnesota to Rainy River, Canada and the birth of Willie Walleye. The museum library and archives welcomes researchers and genealogists.
