The Iron Range Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable trust.
If not for dues and donations from members and local businesses, the Iron Range Historical Society would not have the funds to operate. With donations received by the Society, books written by Society volunteers are published, the Society's annual dinner meeting is funded, rent and utilities are paid, and supplies for the office and research library are purchased.
There are two ways for the Society to receive donations:
19 South Broadway Street
Post Office Box 786
Gilbert, MN 55741
Volunteers are always welcome at the offices of the Iron Range Historical Society. In fact, volunteers are the life blood of the organization. IRHS has no paid employees. Office workers and the Board of Directors are volunteers. The Society’s volunteers hold a special devotion to history, and particularly, Iron Range history.
Currently, volunteers are scanning thousands of photographs held by IRHS into electronic files. The goal is to completely digitize the photo library, which will preserve the photographic history of Minnesota’s Iron Ranges. This in turn will make it easier for researchers to locate photos held by IRHS.
Other work being done by volunteers includes; updating the vertical file inventory, inventorying school annuals, maintaining the obituary files, organizing recent acquisitions, and completing general office duties.
It is with the utmost sincerity that the Iron Range Historical Society THANKS YOU for donating and volunteering with this organization! Future generations will benefit from your generosity today.
