About the LHS
The mission of the Living History Society of Minnesota, Inc., is to educate
the public as to the lifestyles of mid-19th century Americans through the
accurate portrayal of all walks of civilian life. The main focus for LHS
activities centers on the final days of territorial government, through
Minnesota's early statehood (1858) to the end of the Civil War (1865).
Throughout the year, LHS members are given the opportunity to attend
workshops, join research groups and participate in hands-on activities to
increase their own knowledge of the mid-19th century and enable them to share
this information with the public.
Before making a commitment to join, we suggest that interested parties attend
a Living History Society meeting. Membership meetings are held the first
Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm, at the Triune Masonic Lodge, 1898 Iglehart Avenue, St. Paul, MN. To get further information, please send
e-mail to: email@example.com.
The current 2009-2010 membership form is available as a two-page PDF file.
