Northfield Historical Society


In April 1998, Sunset Ridge School celebrated its Seventy-Fifth anniversary. To commemorate the event, a video and book were produced. Because the school and the community are inextricably linked, the materials included a collection of historical photographs, documents, and video memories of Northfield, reaching back to 1860. Those materials are at the heart of the Northfield Historical Society and can be viewed and downloaded through our database.

The text of the book, which includes the most recent history of Northfield as well as Sunset Ridge, is reproduced below. Other histories of Northfield have been written and can be accessed through the database.
