Video Segment Sponsors

50 Hours, 50 Topics

We have selected 50 different topics that highlight different parts of our rich history as well as showcasing Historical Society services.

From Myths & Legends to Notorious Gangsters, Cass Gilbert to the Fillebrowns, and Historic Boat Tours to White Bear Hockey, there is truly something for everyone!

Each segment topic was carefully curated and priced. Higher-level sponsorships will have higher visibility – they are live steamed content or expected to draw a larger audience.
