Our Historical Journey


History Book Cover

In early 2007, the Lake City Historical Society embarked on what appeared at first to be a project well beyond its means – the production of a 100+ page hard-cover history of the community. The estimated cost of $30,000 could not be financed from a bank account that seldom showed a balance exceeding $2,000.

Four local enterprises; Lake City Federal Bank, Lake City Medical Center, Hearth and Home Technology, and the Lake City Graphic, stepped forward to help finance this production.

Lake City, Minnesota, Our Historical Journey, published by Donning Co. of Virginia Beach, VA, is a stunning 8.5″ x 11″ 128 page limited edition volume containing well researched text along with 125 rare photographs.

We are sorry, but we have sold all of our books, and have no copies left.
