Thanks for stopping by!

Maple River Heritage, Inc. is a small town organisation that helps bring our local history to life.

Mapleton, MN 56065

Our goal is to preserve and archive the history of the Minnesota Settlement Association (MSA) and the area that they settled in the Maple River Area.
These brave folks ventured here in 1865, before Minnesota was a State and at the time Mankato only had 6 houses (which is now our County Seat).
We are trying to tell the story of the 365 people that settled this area which is now more than just Mapleton, but also includes Good Thunder, Sterling Center,
Grapeland, Middleton, Cream, Pemberton, Minnesota Lake, Beauford, and the surrounding townships and area which is now 2 Counties (Blue Earth and the northern part of Faribault County).  

Please visit us for your family genealogy research, our research library is small but strong and growing! 

Please view our website to see when you can visit and we hope to see you soon!
