We’ve gone from near plus side temperatures to the perennial deep freeze in only a week. Such is a lot of prairie folk, and we live here; we know how the weather works. For many however, there are the comforts of a regulated furnace, an eclectic fireplace to warm the spirits, and all manners of hi-tech heating mechanisms.
Not so for those who dwelled on the prairies long ago as settlers or Indigenous people. Nowhere is that more evident than at the Humboldt and District Museum. Their Winter Exhibit takes viewers back 100 years to the trials faced by those hardy settlers. Find out how they traveled through the snow, how they kept warm, and how they prepared their food. View old photographs of winter fashion, activities, and means of travel. While you're there try to spot the new additions to the schoolroom and kitchen.
There are also free children’s craft tables set up at the museum. Visit the Museum Tuesday – Saturday from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
A special visit from Santa will be on Saturday!
