Southern Minnesotans Invited to Help Make History
Minnesota Historical Society Holds Public

What do you want to accomplish with history funds from Minnesota's Legacy Amendment over the next 20 years? The Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) will ask Southern Minnesotans that question at two listening sessions on Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012, at the Steele County Historical Society in Owatonna.

The first session, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, is open to people currently working in the history field. The second listening session, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., is open to the general public. The Steele County Historical Society is located at 1448 Austin Rd., Owatonna.

The Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment was approved by Minnesota voters in November 2008. One of the Amendment's four funds, the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF), supports the preservation of Minnesota's history and cultural heritage. Many millions of ACHF dollars will be invested in Minnesota history over the 25-year life of the Legacy Amendment.

"We have an unprecedented opportunity to shape how history looks in the future," said Matt Hill, MHS Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund Manager. "We encourage Minnesotans to make history by giving a voice to this process. What do you want to accomplish with Legacy history funds?"

To participate, please RSVP to Nancy Franke Wilson, 763-360-3875 or

MHS is holding five listening sessions throughout Minnesota in December. Other listening sessions will be held in Marshall on Dec. 4, St. Paul on Dec. 6, Virginia on Dec. 7 and Detroit Lakes on Dec. 14.

This event is made possible by the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
