Our Junior Historian programming will take place on Oct. 21 and will feature activities working with textiles.

This program geared to children ages 7 to 12 will take place from 10 a.m. to noon in our Children’s Learning Lab.

We are also excited to announce the launch of our new website in the coming weeks. Our new address will be This web site will be a great resource to you for upcoming events and updates at the museum. I appreciate the Marketing Plant’s grant program for making this update possible.

Lastly, it is membership renewal time. Please consider becoming a member of the museum. If you are a member, consider increasing your donation. The museum relies heavily on our memberships and community donations to operate the museum. Providing research, restoration, entertainment and education to Freeborn County would not be possible without our members and their donations.

With a membership, you have access to the library, museum, children’s lab activities and the village. We love to share our beautiful building will all of you. Feel free to contact me at 507-373-8003, or stop in during operating hours. I enjoy visitors.
