A National Historic Landmark
Andrew J. Volstead House is 1 of 25 National Historic Landmarks in the State of Minnesota.
2022 is the 100th Anniversary of the Capper-Volstead Act, referred to as the “Magna Carta of Cooperatives.” We are excited to announce that we have received a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to create a photography exhibit of 30 current and varied cooperative businesses. The exhibit will be on display in February 2022, possibly earlier.
The museum is now closed for the season except for special events. We will be open for the 100th year anniversary celebration of the Capper-Volstead Act in February. There is no phone number but you can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are happy to research and answer questions about Volstead history but do not have the staff or resources for other local historic and genealogy research.
The Andrew J. Volstead House Museum is managed by the Granite Falls Historical Society (GFHS). GFHS is a 501c3 nonprofit organization run by a Board of Directors who volunteer their time and abilities to promote and preserve the history of Andrew Volstead and the City of Granite Falls, MN. Visit the home where some of the big ideas of the early 20th century were formed.
The City of Granite Falls with a grant from the Minnesota Historical Society recently completed a conditions assessment for the Andrew J. Volstead House.
