Keeping history alive
Without a concerted effort, historic and cultural treasures are in danger of being lost to time.
That's why the Minnesota Historical Society recently awarded two grants of $6,800 and $5,600 to the Douglas County Historical Society.
The larger grant will be used to help preserve historical clothing in the organization's exhibits while the other grant will go toward keeping an oral history of local World War II veterans alive and vibrant for generations to come.
