The Southwest Minnesota Regional Research Center is a repository of public documents and a historical research library. In collaboration with the Center for Rural and Regional Studies, the History Center promotes the study and preservation of the historical, cultural, ethnic, and religious heritage of southwestern Minnesota. Over the past 30 years, the Minnesota Historical Society has worked closely with the Center and often refers scholars and project ideas.

Business, church, school, legislative, government, and immigration records are among the resources available to students, faculty, community members, and scholars interested in the history of southwestern Minnesota. The Center’s activities include collecting and preserving historical documents, recording oral histories, promoting and organizing conferences and lectures of regional interest, and disseminating information and knowledge. The research center also houses the Prairieland Genealogical Society.
