History Center Summer Camps

We are so excited about our upcoming Summer Camps in 2019! It is going to be a historic summer as we build memories that will last a lifetime.
The Mission of The History Center is to provide a unique community resource that preserves and shares the stories of our past and connects people of all ages to the present and future of Linn County. We are dedicated to connecting the past to the present and future of Linn County and are passionate about making our history both accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
Join us for an unforgettable summer!
