The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County presents History Sundays with Steve Stark, an illustrated history program series for all ages at the Hjemkomst Center. Like a story book unfolding before your eyes, Steve Stark tells fascinating stories about people in history while drawing charcoal caricatures on a 30-foot roll of paper.
Come to the Hjemkomst and learn about the farms of the 1800s. Just like corporate farming of today, Bonanza farms were large farming operations from the 1800s. They employed large crews of workers to grow and harvest grain. For over twenty years, they were highly profitable until they slowly faded away by the 1920s. Learn more and find out what caused their demise on February 10, at 1 P.M. at the Hjemkomst Center, 202 1st Ave. N. in Moorhead. The presentation will run about 60-75 minutes and is appropriate to first-graders on up. The program is free and open to the public; however, regular admission rates to see the museum and exhibits still apply.
