Looking for a different way to enjoy your lunch break in the summer? Come to our Lunchbox History Series and make your lunch break and educational time! Each month on the 4th Thursday, a speaker will present a history topic from Mower County, state, or national history. Visitors are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy.
Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
