Museum Alive the place to be Sunday
Board members of the Walsh County Historical Museum say one of their biggest challenges is getting the word out far and wide that the museum in Minto exists in the little northeastern North Dakota town. Hosting Museum Alive, with a full afternoon of activities planned, is one tool they use to promote the historical gem on the prairie.
The museum opened in the old Minto High School in the early 1970s. It will be open for touring throughout the Sunday afternoon event for visitors to enjoy its numerous displays featuring businesses found on main street in days gone by including a general store, blacksmith shop, saloon, ice cream parlor, photography studio and much more. There are vintage clothing, transportation and wildlife displays, as well as Indian artifacts, military memorabilia and a new exhibit to the museum – a turn of the century toy farm equipment display. Buildings on the grounds include a one-room school house, jail, log cabin, cookhouse and a trading post. (more…)
