Blue Earth County Historical Society, Heritage Center, and R.D. Hubbard House [MN]

The Society operates two museums, the Heritage Center and the R.D. Hubbard House. The Heritage Center serves as the Society's headquarters and also houses an exhibit gallery of local history displays and a research center. The R.D. Hubbard House was built in three stages—1871, 1888, and 1905—and the members of the family occupied the house for 67 years. About a quarter of what once belonged to the Hubbard family can still be found in the furniture of the home. The remainder of the furnishings are donated antiques dating to the late 1900s.

The society offers educational programs and recreational and educational events and programs; the center offers exhibits and research library access; the house offers tours.
