About Us

The Lake County Historical Society operates 3 historic sites in Two Harbors: The 1907 Duluth & Iron Range Depot Museum, the 1892 Two Harbors Light Station, and the 3M Birthplace Museum in the 1902 Dwan Building. The Depot Museum provides a great overview of the storied past of Lake County from the shores of Lake Superior to the logging and mining camps inland. Visit the 3M Birthplace Museum to learn about how a fortune 500 company got its start from a failed mining operation on the North Shore of Lake Superior located at 201 Waterfront Drive.
