Online Gift Shop Now Live!

We have some BIG NEWS – DCHS is debuting our new online gift shop!

We already have books, calendars, postcards, and other gifts for sale right now, and hope to add more soon. You can have your order SHIPPED to you, or you can arrange for PICK-UP at our location in Alexandria, MN. Even better news – your purchases are supporting a local non-profit!

To place an order for pick-up, please place an order between 10am and 2pm during our business days, M-F.

Questions? Want to check on an order? Give us a call at 320-762-0382 or email us at historic@dchsmn.org.

(We apologize that shipping may seem expensive – we do not qualify for bulk discounts like major online retailers and will be shipping things USPS Priority Mail with tracking for safety. Thank you for your understanding and support!)
