Dakota County Historical Society
To preserve, interpret and promote the history of Dakota County.

On March 9, 2021, we presented our Strategic & Business Plan to the Dakota County Commissioners. 

After discussion, the meeting concluded with a request for a proposal by Dakota County staff to be brought forth to the next Dakota County Commissioner meeting on March 23, 2021. DCHS met with county staff to discuss the proposal to be brought in front of Dakota County Commissioners. DCHS was in full support of the proposal. During the March 23rd meeting, Dakota County Commissioners voted unanimously (7-0) to spend the $1.2M in ADA upgrades and improvements. 

A firm will be selected by the end of May to begin the design process. We will continue to update on the process as it continues to progress.

Again, we thank you, our members and non-members, for your show of support in recent months. We also want to thank the Dakota County Commissioners for their unanimous support to provide the ADA upgrades and improvements to the Lawshe Museum.
