About Us

History Center Museum and Gift Shop

The Richfield Historical Society’s mission is: to acquire, document and preserve the unique story of Richfield, Minnesota. In addition, our mission is to inspire a sense of place and history through the details of our past.

The Richfield Historical Society was formed in 1967 to preserve and share the history of the Bartholomew House. In 2005, the History Center building was renovated with the hard work of countless hours by volunteers and with the support of the community. In 2008, the Society published Richfield: Minnesota’s Oldest Suburb. Today, Richfield Historical Society is a dynamic part of the community.

We are a registered 501(c)(3) organization so your contributions to our non-profit organization are tax-exempt.
