Although our name sounds exclusive, we are not. In fact, many members of the Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (MNSAH) are simply people who love architecture and are eager to experience the fascinating built environment of Minnesota and the Upper Midwest with their fellow enthusiasts.
