An Escape Room Challenge
Sunday Feb. 9th
For ages 13 and up
You and a group of friends are hiking in a national park when a freak snowstorm hits. Luckily, you find a warming cabin–a shelter placed along the trail for anyone who might be stranded. Inside there are blankets and other supplies, but the food is locked up and the codes to the communication equipment have been hidden for safety. You don’t know how long you’re going to be stuck here, but as the snow begins to pile up outside, it’s better to be safe than sorry…
We challenge you to escape!
We are excited to have Jeff Jarvis join us for a presentation on History of the Cannon Falls Flour Mills.
Cannon River Valley millers established the state’s first flour milling center by harnessing waterpower, tilling fertile black soil, and building with native limestone and Big Woods timber. When they merged these local assets with their inventions and innovations, it made Cannon Valley flour famous. These gains in technology surpassed all others in previous centuries of milling, ultimately reshaping the nature of the world’s flour industry.
Historic Mills of the Cannon Valley is a book project about the history of the mills, stories of the people, and milling technology developed in the Cannon Valley between 1855 and 1895, with special focus on the first 25 years.
Program sponsored by The Demonstration Heritage Wheat Project and the Cannon Falls Area Historical Museum.
