The Beltrami County Historical Society provides a space to travel through time and experience days gone by in Beltrami County.  

This New Year's Eve, the Beltrami County will host its third annual History Mystery in which historical figures of Beltrami County are all suspects in a murder mystery.  Could the culprit be Jane Russell who was born in Bemidji back in 1921?  

The public is invited to take part, learn about Beltrami County's past, have fun and meet new friends as they ring in the new year.  Doors open at 4 and the game starts at 4:30.
