Estherville has a number of resources for those seeking information about local history.  The library itself contains an obituary file, a number of family histories, and a set of DAR books among the many volumes you'll find in our local history section. 

A digitized collection of our local newspaper archive is posted to the web for searching on and off-site.

We hope to partner with our Genealogical Society and the local museum to offer more detailed listings of all the local history resources you can find at each location.  Please check back often as we build this listing.

This resource is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by State Library of Iowa.
