Where Are We Going? Stearns County Maps
At their most basic level, maps tell us the location and shape of a geographical location at the time it was surveyed. Maps can be used for tracing property ownership, family history, road maps, and even show how the character of an area has changed over time.
Join us this December for the Stearns History Museum’s first-ever Escape Room experience. During the hour, you’ll be transported to the 1920s, a time when everyone wanted the Moonshine Stearns County produced. But the agents are knocking down the door to dry out Stearns County with one goal in mind. Can you stop them?
Thursdays in December - Dec. 1, 8, 15, 22 from 4-7. One hour time slot per group, maximum 6 per session. Sign up today!
