The Otter Tail County Historical Society Coffee Klatch series continues on Friday, March 1 at 10am. OTCHS staff Kathy Evavold, Vicky Anderson and Chris Schuelke will talk about the research that was conducted for the new exhibition "Fergus Falls Cyclone 1919" that is currently on display at the museum.

The 1919 tornado is the most impactful event in the history of Fergus Falls. Fortunately the historical record is extensive. There was comprehensive newspaper coverage, hundreds of photographs were taken, and interviews with survivors provide a comprehensive oral record. Many of these resources were tapped into for the historical society’s new exhibit.

For more information on the OTCHS Coffee Klatch series call 736-6038 or visit our website at www.otchs.org.
