The Goodhue County Historical Society Invites You to Visit Their Vault!

Red Wing, MN – The Goodhue County Historical Society will give RWCS Convention attendees backroom access during the 2013 Convention Diggin Red Wing slated for July 11-13, 2013 at Red Wing High School.

On Thursday, July 11, 2013, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.,  Red Wing Collectors Society convention attendees have an exclusive opportunity to visit the Goodhue County History Center’s “vault” where their collection artifacts, including Red Wing Pottery pieces, are stored.  This is a great chance to view unique pottery pieces that have not been on exhibit recently.  The event is free with a convention badge.  Donations to help cover the costs of preserving the collections are appreciated. 

The Goodhue County Historical Society will also be participating in the 2013 Convention Crock Hunt. The Crock Hunt begins Friday, July 5 and is open to everyone. Completed forms can be turned in at the Membership booth at the RWCS Convention Show and Sale on Saturday July 13 from 10:30 to 1:30. Show and Sale is free and open to the public.

The History Center is located at 1166 Oak Street, Red Wing.  For more information, call (651) 388-6024 or e-mail jlgrothe@qwestoffice.net
