Annual research forum planned in Kensington

The Kensington Area Heritage Society (KAHS) will host its annual research forum on Saturday, April 26 at Kensington’s Community Center, 19 Central Avenue North, Kensington.

Registration begins at 10 a.m., with the morning session starting at 10:30 a.m. There will be a break at noon for lunch at the Kensington Cafe. The afternoon session will convene at 1 p.m.

The formal program is anticipated to end at about 3:30 to 4 p.m., at which time the museum will be open for tours, additional discussion and research in the Wedum Library.

As in past years, several topics will be presented by a number of individuals. This event is geared to providing a forum for research pertinent to the Kensington Runestone and medieval exploration/settlement by Nordic peoples.

Area waterways and trails that may have existed in the 14th century, discovery and preservation of a discarded museum artifact, recent KAHS museum acquisitions and an announcement about future plans and changes at the KAHS museum are some of the topics for this year’s forum.

This event, like all those sponsored by the Kensington Area Heritage Society, is designed to benefit all ages and backgrounds of the public.
