Open March 30 – June 1, 2019
To celebrate the centennial of the American Legion, The Blue Earth County Historical Society will be presenting a special exhibit entitled, A 100 years & A Million Stories: A History of the American Legion. This exhibit will highlight the history of the American Legion and the Mankato Lorentz Post 11 from their beginnings in 1919 to their present-day activities. Throughout their 100-year history, Blue Earth County’s American Legion Posts and its Auxiliary groups have played a major role in our communities. We will explore the history, community service, and camaraderie that have shaped the enduring legacy of the American Legion through their stories.
