About the MHS Press
Minnesota Historical Society Press publishes books on the history, art, and culture of the Upper Midwest. Founded in 1859, it is the oldest publisher in the state and the largest historical society press in the country. We seek to publish books for a broad audience of general readers and specialists. Understanding that where we come from is crucial to who we are, the press publishes books that explore the importance of place in this rich and varied region we call home.
Borealis Books, the national trade imprint of Minnesota Historical Society Press, strives to publish works of enduring value that illuminate our shared quest for identity, place, and heritage.
A lively magazine about the history of the state and the Upper Midwest, Minnesota History features well-researched, engaging articles on fresh topics ranging from the early jazz scene in Minneapolis and a historic high-school basketball “dream team” to rural school consolidation and the birth of civil rights in Minnesota.
