The Hopkins Historical Society was began back in 1972 and today has become a great contributor to the preservation of the history of Hopkins and Hennepin county. The Historical Society is home to historical exhibits which depict the lifestyle, culture and other elements of Hopkins' both distant (i.e. 1900s) and recent history. The exhibits they currently have on display include: Home and Farm, Architectural Remnants, and Raspberry Festival Memorabilia.  Visitors can also view various collections of historical records including photographs, books, Paintings and many other artifacts.  
    The society is also involved in two programs which are the Hopkins Historic Homes Program and the Hopkins Through the Years Project.  The first began in 2000 and aims to document the histories of old homes and old neighborhoods in Hopkins, and the second is a 230 page book written about the community of Hopkins.
