July 15th & 18th Programs

July 15th, 12-1 PM–History Break: “Jesse James in Minnesota”
featuring Northfield Historical Society Director Hayes Scriven

Many Minnesotans know of the Jesse James showdown in Northfield, but few have heard the story from the perspective of the Northfield community. Historical Society Director Hayes Scriven presents original historical research on this much-discussed topic, focusing on the brave Minnesotans from Northfield that stood up to Jesse James and his outlaw gang.

The “History Break” lunchtime program series takes place on the third Wednesday of every month, and features a variety of historical topics. Instead of a regular lunch break, take a history break and learn more about your county, state, and nation.
July 18th, 3:30 PM-6:30 PM–Bluffs & Brews: Paddle the Vermillion River

This month’s Bluffs & Brews program takes participants on a canoe paddling trip down the Vermillion River. Guides will describe the river’s history, explain the modern significance the river has to Goodhue County, and point out flora and fauna along the way. After the trip, the group will celebrate a successful adventure and head to the Staghead Gastropub, where guests enjoy a classic dining experience with a modern flavor.

Tickets are $5 and include canoe and equipment rental and entry to win door prizes courtesy of Vasque Footwear. Food and beverages are not included in the ticket price. Pre-registration is required, and space is very limited. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Goodhue County Historical Society.
