“Footsteps Along the Straight River”

Presented by: Larry Richie
Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017, at 7 pm


The Rice County Historical Society will host a program on stones found along the Straight River presented by Larry Richie.

Did you know the Native American’s used stones as cooking utensils? Larry will share his collection of stones gathered along the Straight River since 2013. He will talk about the process he’s gone through to identify these stones, the barriers he’s met along the way, and how he believes they were made and used.

The cost of the event is $2.00 for Non-RCHS Members/Free for Members. Pre-registration is not required but appreciated.

This event is held in the Rice County Historical Society’s Carlander Family Room. For more information about the event or reserve your spot, call the RCHS museum at 507-332-2121.
