A note from the Blue Earth County Historical Society...

In 2007, the Blue Earth County Historical Society received generous funding from the Minnesota Sesquicentennial Commission to teach kids how to conduct and record oral histories.  The project, titled Talking Back to Tomorrow, started with the Society’s Junior Historians (students ages 12-18).  Their assignment was to interview a person in their life that grew up in the 1950s or 1960s.  For many this was a grandparent or a teacher.  Sit back and listen to life in the “olden day” through the ears of our youth.
