Cultivating community pride
Stories are attached to artifacts but also to the natural resources exclusive to Waseca County. The area is graced with views of the Big Woods meeting the prairie, representing a dual treasure filled with stories of both the “memory towns” that vanished and the ones that sustained themselves and flourished.
Visitors collect stories about the influences important to forming Waseca County’s past—the location of the railroad, changes in technical agriculture, improvement of infrastructure and the determination of the community’s people to make the area a good place to live.
Come see firsthand how regional stories encourage the community’s interest in its past.
