The Osakis Area Heritage Center is an incorporated non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to discover, preserve and share the history of Osakis and the surrounding area. Located in the downtown Osakis Information Center, 11 E. Main St., the all-volunteer Heritage Center is supported by donations and membership dues.
The research collection includes family files, cemetery maps, town maps, county histories, photo files, scrapbooks, and high school and charter school yearbooks. Microfilm copies of the Osakis Review newspaper, 1891 to 2005, are available plus hardbound copies of the newspaper.
Limited research help is available during regular hours of the Osakis Information Center, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hours are extended in summer. Volunteers will do research at a cost of $20 per hour. Please limit written requests to a single request per letter. If you do your own research, copy charges apply, with an expected donation for the use of the materials.
