History at Home #1: One Shoe

January 7 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Your area museums are bringing the history right into your home with Alexandria Community Education’s virtual webinar series, “History at Home.” Join the Douglas County Historical Society, Legacy of the Lakes Museum and Runestone Museum Foundation as they bring the history to you, starting with History At Home: “One Shoe, Canoes, & A Stagecoach Too” on Thursdays in January!


This is for the first webinar in the series:

“One Shoe: The original mode of transportation – foot travel!” – We’ve all heard the stories, “uphill both ways during a blizzard”, but what was it really like? Walking used to be an everyday part of life, from mailing a letter to going fishing – learn more about early local foot travel with host Amanda Seim (Executive Director of the Runestone Museum Foundation).


The other webinars in this series are:

January 14th-“Canoes: Minnesota’s earliest roads were waterways!”


January 28th-” “A Stagecoach Too: The unglamorous experience of early road travel!” with Amanda Seim and the Douglas County Historical Foundation’s Brittany Johnson.
