OPEN HOUSE- Thursday 9/15 6-8PM

Greetings-  It has been a couple of busy months.  The north barn is coming along nicely.  It now has an east wall, the roof is up (not yet shingled), and the middle level has a floor. It may sound strange to get so excited by such little things, but it has taken about five years to get to the point of it finally looking like a building.

This week, a group of Swedes from Andrew Peterson’s home area, will be arriving.  To celebrate the event, we will be hosting an open house at the farm.  Between 6 and 8 PM, we will be giving free tours, with music by the Cloudberries starting at 7 PM.  This is your chance to see what we have been working on, ask questions, and learn the future plans for the property.  Everyone is welcome.  Parking will be located between the first barn and Highway 5, in the former horse pasture.

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.
