INVEST IN HISTORY!

BECHS BOLD Future Campaign

We are excited to announce the next chapter in the Blue Earth County Historical Society’s story. Since November 7, 1901, the Historical Society has actively collected, preserved and shared the rich history and heritage of this county. Now, on our 120th Anniversary, it’s time to look to the future of history and we have a BOLD vision.

In 2025, we will be ready to break ground on this bold expansion that will triple our museum capacity!

To realize this BOLD vision, we are taking a BOLD first step by committing to raise $240,000 in 120 days. Please join me in taking that Bold first step as we kickstart the campaign on our Anniversary weekend and wrap it up at the Annual Meeting on Sunday, March 6, 2022. We need BOLD History Heroes like YOU!

Your contribution now to the BECHS’ $240K | 120 Days | 120th Anniversary BOLD Future Campaign covers the remaining expenses for this year. AND is the first step needed to provide the resources and staffing to move our BOLD vision for the future forward.
