Dakota County Historical Society
To preserve, interpret and promote the history of Dakota County.

DCHS has a collection of city directories, telephone books, community directories, yearbooks and many other resources for research.

We will be adding content to this page, but for now, here is the reverse directory for South St. Paul households from the 1938 Polk Directory of St. Paul and a newspaper city directory from 1914.  

The Central Telephone Directory for Farmington, Lakeville and Rosemount from 1945.

Swift Newsletter content for South St. Paul Employees from 1952, 1953, and 1954
