1877 Peterson Station Museum & Visitors Center

228 Mill Street
Peterson, MN 55962


Nearly 100 years after Peterson Station opened to serve Southern Minnesota Railroad customers, it welcomed the public again in 1974 – this time as a museum. Today, visitors can explore the area’s past through historical memorabilia, photographs, and artifacts, or learn more about their family’s history in the area at the genealogy center.

Our home-grown curator, John Erickson, has stayed true to his passion of amassing a history of Peterson and the local area and presenting it as a pleasing and interesting display of art and artifacts for all ages.
