Hennepin History magazine, a two-time winner in the American Alliance of Museums' Publications Design Competition, explores, collects, and documents the people, places, and things in Minnesota’s largest county. Published since 1941, the magazine has told stories of voyageurs and civic leaders; commented on current and historic events; printed poems, artwork, and even obituaries. Read about what residents do and collect, visit destinations throughout our 607-square-mile county, and learn about innovations and legacy in businesses of all sizes. We tell stories that reflect the diversity of all people throughout the county.
