Great museum to visit to get the history of the area. The person working there was very helpful and gave a lot of information about the early settlers and the Indians. I would recommend a visit.

Great historical information of the Grand Forks and Boundary area. Specifically, on the welcoming Doukhabour community. Great volunteers and friendly staff with support from the City of Grand Forks, have put together wonderful displays, housed in a historical Doukhabour building. A must see!
