Extraordinary footage and unforgettable stories of strength and survival are part of “Minnesota Disasters,” a new exhibit at the Winona County History Center, December 7 through January 20.
Minnesotans are no strangers to man-made or natural disasters. They have faced devastating swarms of grasshoppers, tornadoes, fires and floods. Using photos, text and film, “Minnesota Disasters” explores the preparation, reaction and aftermath to catastrophe in our state. Intertwined with details of those calamities are the incredible stories of human vulnerability and resilience.
The Winona County Historical Society will be hosting an opening reception for “Minnesota Disasters” on Sunday, December 8 from Noon until 8 p.m. during the Christmas Candlelight House Tour. Refreshments will be served.
