Local author and historian Susan Hvistendahl will present “Historic Happenings of Rice County”, an online program for the Rice County Historical Society on Thursday, January 21, at 7 pm.

Hvistendahl, who wrote a “Historic Happenings” column for the Entertainment Guide of Southern Minnesota from 2007-2016, will speak on four topics: Heisman trophy winner Bruce Smith of Faribault, the early bicycling craze in Rice County, the history of the St. Olaf Band since 1891 and Northfield’s iconic Archer House, ravaged by fire last November.
