Edina Historical Society


    Established in 1969 by a group of local citizens, the goal of the Edina historical Society is to preserve the history of the community's development across the years, from its agricultural roots to present day. The society's preservation efforts began with the historic Cahill School which operated and served children of the area from 1864 until it closed its doors in 1958. Through the society's efforts the school was restored and now serves as a part of a living history field trip program.  
    The Society also owns and operates the Edina History Museum which is home to two exhibit galleries, a library, and a gift shop. It is also where the Society's ever growing collections of records and other documents are stored. The museum was the former home of Morten and Katherin Arneson and is located in Arneson Acres Park, a 14 acre city park.
