The Minnesota Historical Society will once again have a strong presence at this year’s Great Minnesota Get Together. Wendy Freshman produces the society sponsored show “History on a Schtick” and says the fair is a perfect time to educate while having fun.

“We also have a fantastic self guided history walking tour. And we’ve been doing this for a long time and every year the questions change. It’s just a great family experience.”

Along with two performances of the show each day, Freshman says the Historical Society booth in the Education Building will have giveaways and a photo station backdrop featuring the Split Rock Lighthouse.
