Connecting people through the power of history and culture

The Stearns History Museum extends our sympathy to the friends and family of Barb Carlson, who has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2014 and led our Development Committee for several years. She and her husband Jerry also are longtime members and donors.


We appreciate Barb’s time, dedication, and enthusiasm for history in Central Minnesota, and she will be dearly missed. If you would like to donate in her honor, please visit
