The History Museum of East Otter Tail County, one of the first to make local historical records available online, is located in Perham, Minnesota in the heart of the west central lakes area. Established in 1998, the displays at the History Museum tell the stories of the people, places and events of the area through interpretive exhibits, photographic displays, and original motion picture footage. The Museum, which is open daily to the public, is housed in a beautiful historic stone structure built in 1887. A genealogy lab welcomes visiting researchers.

Staff was helpful and friendly, exhibits were well thought-out and put together. They are preserving the history of the county plus showing a concern and care for preserving the current history of the county.
