  • ✪ Minnesota Stories: History Rises in Isanti County

Transcription

[ music ] [ Kathy McCully ] We left on a Thursday and by Friday morning our job descriptions had changed and everything was gone. [ female narrator ] In July 2011, an arsonist set fire to the Isanti County Historical Society. [ Kathy McCully ] Everybody was in shock and there were a lot of tears. I would estimate we've lost 75 to 80% of everything that we had. And of course, it's old paper, so it goes up fast. [ narrator ] 150 years of photos, newspapers, artifacts, oral histories, and family histories. Gone. [ Kathy McCully ] Family histories and so forth were used a lot for research. [ Ann Marie Martinson ] Church obits and announcements from funerals. To find them again, you can't. [ narrator ] What's left has been moved across town into a small office. Staff still trying to salvage what they can. [ Kathy McCully ] You can feel this if you'd like. It's like melded together. [ Ann Marie Martinson ] I take a shower after I go to work. [ laughter ] There's no point. I walk out smelling like a fire. [ Kathy McCully ] The saddest things I think that we lost were the oral histories and the translations to those histories. [ narrator ] Oral histories told decades ago by elderly people, who have since passed away. [ Kathy McCully ] I think I was in shock for the first year. [ narrator ] But things are starting to look up. [ construction sound ] A new Isanti County Historical Society Heritage Center opens this spring. [ construction sound ] Several grants awarded by the Minnesota Historical Society and funded by the Legacy Amendment are helping Isanti County get back on its feet. [ Kathy McCully ] Without the opportunity to apply for those grants and get funding, I don't know how we would do it. [ narrator ] No one has been arrested for starting the fire. That hasn't stopped Kathy and her crew from starting over. Fundraising, collecting, keeping Isanti County history alive and accessible. [ Kathy McCully ] It's just to try and bring people to us or we have to bring the history to them. Yeah, and tell the stories.

History

The county was formed on February 13, 1857.[3] Its name came from the Izaty Indians, the ancient name for the Santee Indians, members of the Dakota alliance. Isanti is derived from the Dakota word for "knife" and refers to the Santee tribe.[4]

Isanti County is included in the Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Geography

The Rum River flows south through the county's central part. The county's terrain is hilly and etched with drainages and gullies, and dotted with lakes and ponds.[5] The terrain generally slopes to the south and east; its highest point is near its northwest corner, at 1,020' (311m) ASL.[6] The county has a total area of 452 square miles (1,170 km2), of which 436 square miles (1,130 km2) is land and 16 square miles (41 km2) (3.5%) is water.[7]
