    Druggists have been a constant presence in St. Peter since it was founded in the late 1850s. Some were in business for decades while others were only here for a short time. Drug stores did more than dispense medicine - some had lunch counters and soda fountains.

    Join Bob Sandeen on January 25, 2018 at 2:00pm for a look back on the many drug stores and druggists in St. Peter. See bottles and advertisements from the Nicollet County Historical Society’s collection.

    The Great War broke out in Europe in 1914 and raged for more than two years before the United States joined in 1917. On June 5 of that year, all men between the ages of 21 and 30 were required to sign up for the draft and in December the first of 17,000 troops from Minnesota shipped out.

    See and learn about our local “doughboys” and the things they wore and carried through a special look at World War I artifacts from the NCHS collection. Special focus will be on those who served in the Canadian army, including Luther Stone, brother to prominent St. Peter attorney, Marshall Stone. Local military historian and NCHS volunteer Marlin Peterson will lead the program on February 22, 2018, at 2:00 pm.
