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 this March with “March Past”
In just 50 years, beachwear moved from full bloomer costumes to bikinis. Learn about the evolution, the scandals, and the influences that brought our swimwear into the 21st century with Kaci Johnson from the Legacy of the Lakes Museum.
