Walking Tour of Perham

Walking Tour of Downtown Perham
Thu, June 16, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Northern Pacific Park, Perham, MN 56573, United States

Are you ready for some Turtle Fest fun? Chris Schuelke, Executive Director from the Otter Tail County Historical Society will be in the middle of Perham’s famous festival with a tour of historic downtown Perham on Thursday, June 16, at 6:30 pm. The tour begins at NP Park.

A walk through Perham’s downtown district reveals a treasure trove of historic buildings. Intricate brick work, Italianate and Art Deco stylings, and odd symbols adorn many of the structures. Who constructed these buildings? What were they used for? What stories lie behind the facades?

The tour goes beyond architectural details to reveal stories about the people and events that make up Perham’s heritage. What pool hall owner who, when arrested by the sheriff for selling illegal liquor, paid his fine in pennies and nickels to annoy the county attorney? This and many other questions will be answered during our walk.

Cost for the tour is $6,  For more information call OTCHS at 218-736-6038

Drinks and Snacks at the EOT History Museum afterwards.
