Masonic Temple Association Building
NCC’s large offices, library, and artifact processing laboratory – not to mention its immediate connection to a full banquet space, catering kitchen, bathrooms, etc. provide space for public presentations from 20 to 250 people. NCC has even hosted annual meetings for the Council for Minnesota Archaeology.
NCC is conveniently located on the eastern side of the metro area, right off of I-94 and Hwy-52 just minutes from the Minnesota Historical Society, Office of the State Archaeologist, and the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office. NCC rents space in the Masonic Temple Association building and has its own, secure, all-in-one space – with large warehouse access when needed, ample parking, and great neighbors.
Because NCC is truly a collaboration between a large number of team members, all working in concert to complete any project our clients have, we have a large collaboration space to use if and when its needed. NCC also currently houses the Christina Harrison Literature Collection – representing more than 40 years of archaeological projects completed in the Upper Midwest.
Beyond these, NCC also proudly boasts possibly the largest CRM research library in the metro area. Built over 30 years of Midwestern research, the collection has a complete Bureau of American Ethnology pre-1950 collection, a complete 1874 Andreas Atlas, Winchell’s Aborigines of Minnesota, dozens of runs of archaeological journals, and thousands of CRM and local/Minnesota/Midwest books including an expansive and invaluable “grey literature”.
