Welcome to Knife River Heritage & Cultural Center
Knife River has a rich history from the first Native Americans through copper mining, logging, railroading, commercial fishing, boat building to a recreation destination.
The town’s history is being preserved by the Knife River Heritage & Cultural Center (KRHCC). The Center was established in July of 2018 as a non-profit and at the site of the Knife River train depot.
The depot and KRHCC site is a “work-in-progress” and is not officially open. However, you can see the depot restoration in progress and get a snapshot of Knife River’s history from outdoor interpretive displays.
At this time the KRHCC is a “minimal service” historical site and offers no services or bathrooms.
