Museum staff to present architectural history of Fergus [UPDATED]Published 3:57am Tuesday, May 28, 2013 Updated 6:08am Tuesday, May 28, 2013
A new video production on the architectural history of Fergus Falls will be presented at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28 at the Otter Tail County Historical Museum.
Created by the Fergus Falls Heritage Preservation Commission, the video provides an in depth examination of the city’s development from the first wood frame buildings to structures with intricate brick work.
“We Are What We’ve Built” details how our local architecture has evolved. After decades of demolition, alteration and restoration, Fergus Falls still retains many historical buildings that make it one of the most attractive community’s in Minnesota.
A city’s image is reflected in its architecture. Visitors and new residents notice and judge a town by its buildings and landscape. It is a map of our history, leading us from the past to the present and on into our plans for tomorrow.
Like the old saying “you are what you eat,” as a community we are what we’ve built.”
Join the Heritage Preservation Commission for this unique look into our local history.
Admission is free, light refreshments will be served. Call 218-736-6038 for more information.
