Legacy grant helps Museum hire a writer for MNopedia Articles


Murray County will soon be represented on the MNopedia website, a site dedicated to discovering and disseminating the history of our great state. Similar to Wikipedia, the site is considered a resource for reliable information about significant things, places, events, and people from our past. Each topic has a short essay included. There will be six to seven new articles entered in the site on topics from Murray County’s past  written by a qualified historian or author.

Thanks go to an Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant  provided by the Minnesota Historical Society with funds provided from the 2008 Legacy Amendment  voted on by the citizens of Minnesota.

Topics that have been chosen for this round of essays include the general history of Murray County, the history of the End O Line Park and Museum, the Sweetman Colony, the History of the Murray County Fair and fairgrounds, Christopher and Flora Dinehart, and Anna Sheerin Lowe, the first female sheriff in the state of Minnesota.

If you have ideas for more topics please be sure to pass them along. We want to see Murray County history well represented on this site. To see the current essays on MNopedia go to: www.mnopedia.org
