Together through the vision and hard work of dedicated volunteers and generous donors like you, along with our committed staff and board members, we’ve built an organization we all can be proud of. I have always loved these three words from our original (and still current) mission statement—for future generations. Just like those founders knew back in 1901, history doesn’t stop and neither should we.
That’s why we are excited to continue bold steps toward the next chapter in Blue Earth County Historical Society’s story. The BOLD VISION is to triple the History Center’s Museum! Last year, you supported the BOLD FUTURE campaign and together we raised $240,000 in 120 days to launch the EXPANSION VISION! Sincere gratitude to those that made gifts to that BOLD campaign.
The first phase in this BOLD VISION is redeveloping the south side of the History Center. We now have a better understanding of the true cost of this important phase. This year, thanks to your previous support, we are closer to realizing those key exterior improvements in 2023. Redevelopment of the History Center exterior includes property acquisition, a new accessible parking lot, new signage and a pollinator teaching garden! The goal for this BOLD PHASE is to raise an additional $125,000 in 2022. The total projected cost for this phase is $450,000.
