MMMNMMEXPANSION PROGRESS REPORT!
On August 22nd, 2017 CCHS was open for business at our new
location in downtown Lindstrom, MN! Our physical address is
12785 Lake Blvd, formerly the Gordy's Cards & Gifts shop.
We stirred up a lot of dust during the move but all the shelves
and reference materials are availabe for your use. WiFi access
is up and running and new work stations and a spacious
conference table are also available.
Our phone number (651) 257-5310 and the PO Box 146
mailing address have remained the same.
In November CCHS will begin the work needed to expand into
our adjoining space that previously was home to Gordy's
Cards & Gifts. Minor remodeling to create a small sales area
and a thorough carpet cleaning will be the first orders of
business. The next steps will include planning and setting up
history displays. With all the summer festivals and events
behind us, the directors, staff, and volunteers will now focus
on this next phase during the fall and winter months.
CCHS will continue to be open Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
each week from noon until 4:00 pm. Volunteers are needed to
expand to additional days and hours. Give us a call if you are
interested in greeting visitors and directing them to our
research library resources.
