We had a visit from one of our favorite groups last week. As part of their Minnesota History curriculum, the Minnewaska Area Schools 6th grade studies Pope County History and makes a visit to the museum. While we enjoy all our school tour groups, it is especially enjoyable to give a tour to students who have been studying Pope County specifically. They come armed with knowledge about our early history and townships and we get to supplement their knowledge by letting them see and touch artifacts from their own past.
The students also fill out a biography sheet that is added to their personal history file for future generations to read and enjoy.
