U of M blogs about the Peterson Farm

The CCHS applied for a large Legacy grant for the final restoration for the north Peterson barn.  The initial  grant was applied for last summer. After a review and rewrite the final grant was submitted in the fall.  The CCHS Executive Director then testified before the deciding board several weeks ago.  The results will be released in December.  Cross you fingers and toes, as the barn can’t last much longer.  If approved, the grant will fully restore the barn and will use some new technology, which will allow everyone to watch the restoration from anywhere in the world!

I am the Executive Director at the Carver County Historical Society. The truth of the matter is, that I am not sure I want to admit to how many years I have been in this business. Suffice it to say I have a Masters degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration and began my career in the 1980s. Oops, did I say that? I was reared on a farm, and began my career working at the MNHS site, the Oliver Kelley Farm. The love of the land and history run deep in my blood.
