Maple River Heritage Inc

Thanks for stopping by!

Maple River Heritage, Inc. is a small town organziation that helps bring our local history to life.

Our goal is to preserve and archive the history of the Minnesota Settlement Association (MSA) and the area that they settled in the Maple River Area.
These brave folks ventrued here in 1865, before Minnesota was a State and at the time Mankato only had 6 houses (which is now our County Seat).
We are trying to tell the story of the 365 people that settled this area which is now more than just Mapleton, but also encludes Good Thunder, Sterling Center,
Grapeland, Middleton, Cream, Pemberton, Minnesota Lake, Beauford, and the surrounding townships and area which is now 2 Counties (Blue Earth and the northern part of Faribault County).  

Please visit us for your family geneology research, our research library is small but strong and growing!
