Author to present "Minnesota's Lost Towns" at Historical Society June 6

Rhonda Fochs will talk about her new book, "Minnesota's Lost Towns", at the Wadena County Historical Society or Friday, June 6 at 7 p.m. History teacher and author, Rhonda Fochs, has spent several years researching and documenting nearly 150 lost towns of northern Minnesota to discover what created them, how they grew and prospered and why they died. Her presentation will include a comparative 'then and now' photo display of some of these historic town-sites as well as the stories of the people and places of Minnesota's past. Feel free to bring memories and stories of your own 'lost town' to share. Her recently published book will be for sale at a discounted price.

The program is part of the Wadena County Historical Society's Spring 2014 lecture series and is free and open to the public. The next program in the series will be Dale Blanshan with "Follow the Flag" on July 3.
