Volunteers Needed


Could you volunteer an hour or two a week to help inventory the items the history museum has in storage?  We’ve received a Legacy grant from the State of Minnesota to hire a Collections Technician to train us, and to provide supplies.  Now we need willing hands.  You could make lists of items in boxes, sew on labels, print or paint on labels, or provide data entry.  We’ve a July 31 deadline for initial data entry, and a March deadline to be DONE.  Please help.  Call 952-472-9800 or email info@westonkahistoricalsociety.org









Lake Minnetonka Native American Mound Sites














Our museum has an interactive Lake Minnetonka Native American Mound Sites display. More than 50 documented mound sites are described. Information for each site/area is displayed when clicking on its map balloon.


It would seem that these mounds were most often built in high, dry spots that often offered beautiful views of lakes and rivers.


Around Lake Minnetonka, 524 mounds were mapped at 48 sites in the 1880s.  Today, about 40 mounds remain at 12 sites.
