history.jpg

Join the Fergus Falls Heritage Preservation Commission and Otter Tail County Historical Society as we celebrate National Historic Preservation Month with a discussion on historic home ownership on Tuesday, May 7, 7pm at the OTCHS museum.

Scattered throughout Fergus Falls are several historic houses that always catch people’s attention. Inevitably questions and comments arise. Who owns these homes? What is the history behind them? Can you imagine the maintenance involved in keeping them up? We will answer these questions as three historic home owners in Fergus Falls tell their stories about the joys and perils of owning these local treasures. Included in the program are: Jona Brown owner of the 1882 C. J. Wright House, Scott and Deb Nelson, owners of 1883 Cowing House, and Jeff and Deb Zachmann, owners of the 1914 Christianson House.

Join us for for this engaging and often humorous look at historic house ownership in Fergus Falls. For more information contact the Otter Tail County Historical Society at 218-736-6038.

This program is presented free of charge.
