We won the grant!

I just found out today that we won a Legacy grant for $182,223 to complete the restoration of the North Peterson Barn.  You will be able to watch the work being completed via our website, and will be welcome to come out to watch in person.  Work will start around the end of January or when we receive notification that work can begin.  This historic building was build in the 1880s.

A better Christmas present, you could not ask for.

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.
