The Mazeppa Area Historical Society would like to invite you, to join them in creating a place to share our memories, photos, and memorabilia of the past, present and future to be enjoyed and preserved by the Mazeppa Community and its visitors to the area.
The Mazeppa Area Historical Society was founded in the fall of 2010, obtaining 501c-3, non-profit status. All donations are tax-deductible.
An early goal of the MAHS was to obtain a building for displaying and sharing photos and artifacts that can be enjoyed by the Mazeppa Community and its visitors. The Mazeppa Area Historical Society is proud to announce our recent purchase of the old People’s State Bank.
The mission of the Historical Society is to collect, preserve and disseminate knowledge about the city and surrounding area of Mazeppa. Our new building will also have a research center for genealogy searches, with who’s who of past citizens, businesses, farms, births, deaths etc.

The Friendship Wagon Train started its trek on Saturday, June 24 in Owatonna. Now in its 29th year, the Friendship Wagon Train raises money so that children and adults with developmental disabilities can attend Camp Winnebago near Caledonia. On June 29th the wagon train came to Mazeppa. They camped overnight, down by the river near the athletic field. They left to continue on their journey, early Friday morning.
