Building Expansion Update 5 – 8/6/2014

We have made great progress in the past week thanks to some great volunteers. This past weekend, the wall that was put up in 1988 to help separate the two levels was removed, making it easier for staff, volunteers and visitors to move between the two floors. To help our volunteers know what projects and cleaning needs to be done downstairs, all they need to do is look for one of several post-it notes. If you would like to help with any of the projects, please contact Danelle, there are a lot of post-it notes.

Building Update 2 - 7/2/2014

It’s official, the building is ours! Over the next few weeks we will begin cleaning and painting the lower level before moving the Museum Gift Shop and Marian Anderson Art Gallery. One of the challenges that we face will be making sure that we can alter some of the walls within the building. If you would like to physically help with some of our light construction projects, please contact Jessica.  

Building Update 1 - 6/24/2014

We are about to enter into a very exciting time for the Blue Earth County Historical Society. As of July 1, 2014 the entire building will be ours. Here are some of our current plans for the building.

One of the biggest changes will be to move the main entrance to the Warren Street entrance instead of the current Cherry Street Door. First, we will begin with cleaning, painting and light maintenance work in the lower level, including opening the second stairwell between the upper and lower levels.
