Cruising Rice County History

Posted on: Jul 2 2020 by admin

Saturday, August 22 – 10am to 2:30pm

Join the Rice County Historical Society for an outside tour of 7 historic sites around the county. Volunteers will be at each site to share its history and answer questions.

This is a family-friendly and COVID-friendly event. All vehicles (cars, vans, motorcycles, even busses) are welcome. $20/vehicle – no matter how many people are in the vehicle. 

To make it fun, we’ve added a poker-run-like game where each car will get one playing card when they stop at each historic site, and then participants will turn in the best 5-card hand of their 7 cards. The top 5 hands will receive a prize. (To be announced on Facebook and on our Website by 7 pm that night.)

Participants should start this 2-hour tour anytime between 10 am and noon. Poker hands should be turned in no later than 2:30.

Please note: due to Covid-19, we will not be touring the interior of buildings.
