Open House at the Wadena County Historical Society – Museum and Genealogy Research Center

 

Wednesday, May 18, 2011 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Come and see the NEW Wadena County Historical Society Museum at 603 Jefferson Street North just north of the Armory. The new Genealogy Research Room has a link to Ancestry.com.  We will now be offering Ancestry.com to the public to search for their roots.

The new addition in the Railroad Room is the Aldrich Depot, in the Country Store is the 1896 Barn Wall in honor of Larry Wegner’s century farm of the Bertha area.  You’ll want to see Stitchin’ Post/Nationalities where we have our newest display being a Vintage House.  That house honors the St. Ann’s School that was demolished last year, the Wadena United Methodist Church by using their 1911 wood shingles on the Vintage House and wood from the Kane farm of Bluffton.  You can view the archaeology treasures from the 1700’s Hudson Bay Company in the Country Store.  The Two Nations Indian Village is in our lower level and so much more in the 15 different rooms.

This event is free to the public.  We will not be charging any admission to this Open House.  We want every one to have a chance to see our NEW museum.  Refreshments and snacks will be provided for all attendees.
