You are invited to be part of history in the making. All donations made during the month of May will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $75,000. These funds will go towards the parking lot reconstruction.

  • 30+ year old parking lot will be fully reconstructed.
  • Parking capacity will increase with eight new spots at the same grade as the main entrance making the parking lot more accessible.
  • Two new entrances to the parking lot from South 5th Street.
  • Installation of parking lot and building lighting for History Center and neighborhood safety.
  • Beautification projects like extension of our native prairie beds, outside gathering space with new brick patio, bike racks, public art, and improved signage.

Memorialize your family name, organization, or business in Blue Earth County history while supporting the Society’s important mission to preserve, protect and share our local history. Commemorative bricks will be placed in the new outside gathering space patio. Funds raised from brick sales will support the parking lot project and future capital improvement projects.
