Our next meeting in the police and fire station community room is Tuesday, April 22nd at 1:00 pm. Our guest will be Kurt Lysne. Bring memories, stories and any old maps you may have to share with him and all of us. Kurt has made a study of railroads, highways and the history of traffic into and out of Robbindale. We are looking for any information or old oral history you cans share with us.  Bring a friend and stay for coffee and cookies.

Robbinsdale Books

We are a volunteer organization and try to raise money for our historical projects through fund raisers. Our largest revenue however, comes from the sale of these books. “Robbinsdale Then and Now” sells for $15.00 and the Robbinsdale High School Books are $20.00 each. You can pick up your copies at at the Robbinsdale City Hall, Robbinsdale Historical Society or by  calling Diane Jacobson at 651-633-6531  or Rollie Heywood at 763-535-7258.



A new Robbinsdale book from Arcadia Publishing will be available in the museum  on July 7th, 2014.  You can Pre-order this Images of America title from Barnes and Noble or Amazon.com.
