Help us raise $50,000 in 50 hours!

The White Bear Lake Area Historical Society is proudly celebrating 50 years of preserving local history this fall! Join us on September 25-27, 2020 as we will stream 50-hourly online segments (live and pre-recorded) that will showcase our community’s rich history, as well as highlight the work we do at the Historical Society.

The fun will kick off at 6 pm on Friday evening with an opening live stream program about how and why the Historical Society began. Then each hour another segment will be released, some live on location, and others pre-recorded snapshots of local history. The hourly programs will continue all weekend, ending with a final live segment on Sunday evening.
