Changes are coming to the Historical Society Museum in Minster.

About a year ago, the Minster Historical Society bought the building next door to their main museum site. The society's Heritage Park sits between the two buildings. Plans to connect the 1880s building with the main museum are in the works, and with a new space means more room to permanently display some of the artifacts in storage, have space for preserving records, and bring in visitors to hold special programming, too.

"We're also going to be expanding to the point where we’re going to be able to increase our programming in small program areas - that will give us a little elbow room in that direction," said Mary Oliges, President of the Minster Historical Society.

The Minster Historical Society is a non-profit and so far has raised a third of the 300 thousand dollars needed for work in the new building. To help raise some money for renovations, they're planning a food truck rally on Saturday, June 2nd, outside of the museum. For more details, visit the Minster Historical Society website.
