Wadena County Historical Society awarded
a Minnesota Historical & Cultural Grant
for the Reaume Geophysical survey and Archeology Dig.
The Minnesota Historical & Cultural Grant Committee granted WCHS a $6990 grant for the “Reaume’s Leaf River Post” Survey Project: A Remote Sensing and Archaeological Investigation. The grant is made possible by funds from all Minnesota taxpayers through the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. This was passed by Minnesotans on November 4th 2008. The Grants are administered by the Minnesota Historical Society.
This project will take place in the spring and summer of 2013. WCHS and the U of M Anthropology Department have been working together over the past four years with Archaeology Digs at the Old Wadena site and now at the Reaume site. Eventually the artifacts found at these sites will be on display here at the museum for the community to enjoy.
