Oakdale-Lake Elmo Historical Society dissolves without enough volunteers


In 1913, the Eder School was still in use as a schoolhouse. It had no plumbing or electricity, and water had to be collected from the outdoor hand pump. Oil lamps were used to light the building, and a wood stove provided heat in the cold months of the year. (submitted photo)

One-room schoolhouse changes hands again

“There isn’t much interest in young people in history these days,” said Carol Houck, secretary and treasurer of the Oakdale-Lake Elmo Historical Society.

Lack of interest seems to be a trend across all volunteer-dependent organizations, which have been unable to attract people from the working and youth populations. In the case of the Oakdale-Lake Elmo Historical Society, it has been especially crippling. 

In response to its declining membership, the group merged with and recently transferred its collection to the Washington County Historical Society.
