A bunch of ATHS members got together in early 1992 to see if there was enough interest to start a new chapter in Minnesota – there was! The first official meeting was held the fourth Friday in June 1992 and the chapter began. A volunteer stepped up to the plate in October 1992 and started publishing the MN Metro Chapter Newsletter. It is now on its third editor, but going strong. Newsletters are mailed early in even numbered months so they arrive before the next meeting.

Regular meetings are held at the Kelley Farm Museum just east of Elk River:

Winter meetings will be on the fourth Saturday morning in October, December, and February. Start time is 9 am.

Summer meetings will remain on the fourth Friday for April, June, and August. Start time is 7:30 pm. Click on the Events link above to see when the next meeting is. If you have any questions or concerns about our chapter, please use the email link found at the bottom of this page.

Membership in the Minnesota Metro Chapter also requires membership in ATHS. Annual dues for the chapter are $15 ($7.50 if you join during Jan – Jun) payable to MN Metro Chapter via our Treasurer. You can open our application form in PDF format in a new window. You should be given the opportunity to save the file to your hard drive. It can be read and printed out using the free Reader available through Adobe Products website. Print the form, fill it in, and mail it with your check to the address on the form. Be sure to mail the form and the check to the address at the bottom of the form, not to the President.
