East Polk


The L.W. Larson house, which was constructed in 1887, is the Heritage Center’s main facility and contains the majority of the Center’s artifacts.  There is also a one-room log cabin constructed in 1995, which contains the remaining artifacts.  In the summer of 2010, the Moen country school was moved to the Heritage Center and is now in the process of being restored.

There is no charge for admission but donations are welcome.

Location:  The East Polk Heritage Center is located on US Highway 2 East in Fosston, MN.  It is just west of the hospital complex.

Hours of operation:  Starting with the first Saturday in May with the initial opening of the Farmers Market (held on the Heritage grounds), the Center is open each Saturday during the hours of the Farmers Market which is 8:00 a.m. to noon (or later if Farmers Market remains active).

Then, starting with Memorial Day weekend and extending through Labor Day weekend, we are open Fridays and Sundays from 1:30 to 4:30 in addition to the Saturday hours noted above.
