A Park Rapids History Trail questionnaire is waiting for you. Your responses will help shape compelling historical facts and information for researchers working on this project.
The questionnaire consists of three open ended questions and can be accessed at https://forms.gle/ih2S2fFyYuAAF79X9. Deadline to respond is Oct. 31.
The City of Park Rapids and Hubbard County Historical Society were awarded a Partnership Grant by the Minnesota Historical Society early last summer. The city is contracting with Hess, Roise and Company, historian consultants who prepared the questionnaire.
The intent is to apply for a subsequent grant to implement a history trail to promote heritage and cultural tourism and educate residents, new residents, visitors and tourists about our community’s history.
The grants program is made possible by the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
