The Wadena County Historical Society had its grand reopening Wednesday, May 18, displaying a new remodeled look and some new features.


Executive Director Sandi Pratt began the remodeling process in 2006.

"It just seemed like everything needed updating," she said.

Before then, she said, the museum was organized by shelves instead of exhibits. The project involved grant writing, donated items from the area and a lot of work from the Historical Society and volunteers.
