Cross River Heritage Center Building

The Cross River Heritage Center located in Schroeder, MN on the North Shore of Lake Superior, is the place to visit to experience local heritage and culture. There are 3 floors of historical displays, as well as a travel information center and a gift store.  Each year a new historical theme is respresented with displays on the ground floor. The lower and upper floors have permanent displays taken from the themes of previous years. The building itself has an interesting history, with its distinguishing Tudor-style architecture, was originally built in 1929. Over time it has become a landmark, known by both tourists and local residents alike, as the heart of Schroeder. Its unusual architecture makes it the only Tudor building in Cook County since its construction. Through the years it has been home to The Stickney Inn, as well as a boarding house, restaurant, general store, post office, gas station and meat market.
