Make plans for frozen family fun at the Goodhue County Historical Society Free Family Fun Day!
Are you missing some of the museum and historical events that are usually taking place this time of year? We found a fun one coming up, the Free Family Fun Day- Frozen Fun at the Goodhue County Historical Society.
Each month the Goodhue CHS hosts a free family fun day with a different theme. The next one takes place Saturday, February 6th from 12-3.
The History Center invites you to “Come take a look at our newest temporary outdoor exhibit Frozen Fun. What did past Minnesotans do for fun when the weather turned frigid? While snow and cold drove others inside, the people of Goodhue County were a hearty bunch. From sleds to skating, explore the historic winter activities used to combat cabin fever! Inside there will also be some winter themed games and crafts to do around the museum”
Our girls have enjoyed trying out snowshoeing this year and learned the newer style is way different from the wooden handcrafted kind from years ago. We’ve also ridden down a hill on old fashioned toboggan – a funny word but even more fun to be on one! There is so much history to learn even with our outdoor activities and games we play.
A history of the Goodhue County Historical Society:
Goodhue County Historical Society serves as the steward for county history by collecting, preserving, and promoting the natural and cultural history of Goodhue County through education and outreach.
Minnesota’s oldest county historical society, the Goodhue County Historical Society was chartered in 1869. After residing for 37 years in the basement of the County Courthouse, the Society moved into the Baptist Old People’s Home building on College Hill in Red Wing in September of 1969. Between 1989 and 1992, the building was remodeled to increase storage and exhibit space.
