MMMNMMEXPANSION PROGRESS REPORT!
On August 22nd, 2017 CCHS was open for business at our new
location in downtown Lindstrom, MN! Our new physical
address is 12795 Lake Blvd, formerly part of the Gordy's
Cards & Gifts shop.
Our phone number (651) 257-5310 and the PO Box 146,
Lindstrom, MN mailing address have remained the same.
We have begun the work needed to expand into our adjoining
space that previously was home to Gordy's Cards & Gifts. We
planned some remodeling to create convenient access to both
areas of the building. Thorough carpet cleaning will be the first
order of business and a new gateway will be installed to allow
easy access to the two public areas of the building.
The next steps include planning and setting up history
displays. With all the summer events and festivals behind us,
the directors, staff, and volunteers will now focus on this next
phase during the upcoming winter months.
CCHS will continue to be open Tuesday from 9:00 am to 4:00
pm and Thursday and Friday from noon until 4:00 pm. Stop
by and visit!
Volunteers are needed to help the society expand into
additional days and hours. Give us a call if you are interested
in greeting visitors and directing them to our research library
CCHS is also looking for individuals or groups who would like
to sponsor their own collection or exhibit. Our idea is to help
promote others who are partners in preserving the history of
our area. Give us a call to discuss your ideas!.
