Ever wonder about that distant relative who emigrated to Cedar Falls from Denmark? Curious about a historic building on Main Street? Want to learn more about the underground music scene of the 1980s?

With city directories, probate records, historic photographs, postcards, manuscripts, voice recordings, videos, and family papers, the Cedar Falls Historical Society’s Archives and Library preserves and provides access to a wealth of Cedar Falls history.
