Historical Society Seeks Information on Businesses, Organizations

The Martin County Historical Society plans a project to create a book documenting Martin County businesses, professional organizations and non-profits, both current and those no longer in existence in a book tentatively titled: “Martin County Businesses — Today and Yesterday.”

All Martin County businesses, professional organizations and nonprofits may participate and provide information and photos, both current and historic. A questionnaire is available at

The historical society staff will create the story of each business based on the feedback provided. Participants may edit and approve the final copy prior to inclusion in the book.

Pictures are very important to the project, both current and historic. Pictures provided will be scanned and originals returned to the owner.

Those with questions may contact Lenny Tvedten at the Martin County Historical Society at (507) 235-5178, (507) 399- 1701 or email at

Participants may also provide a written account of their business.
