It has been yet another busy season for all of us at the Wayzata Historical Society! As September draws to a close, so too will this chapter in our organization’s history. Effective October 1, 2023, our team will be joining three other local history organizations to become the new Lake Minnetonka Historical Society (LMHS). As we transition into this new era, one may feel a bit of sadness to see the Wayzata Historical Society name go away. Indeed, the past 41 years have seen much growth and many good times. As we navigated through this process, the board considered these thoughts deeply. Instead of feeling any sense of loss, I personally see this as one of the most exciting times ever for our local history. The consolidation forming the new Lake Minnetonka Historical Society will allow our mission of collecting, preserving, and sharing our history to be strengthened and continue far into the future.
