Military Traveling Trunk
The Fillmore County Historical Society is excited to announce the history center will host a traveling military trunk courtesy of the Minnesota Military Museum in Little Falls. Further details will be announced in the months ahead. The trunk features uniform and field articles commonly used by soldiers in both Union and Confederate armies during the War of the Rebellion. Items are reproductions and are on loan from the military museum. The exhibit is expected to arrive in Fountain just prior to the Labor Day weekend and will be on display during a three-week loan period. A special reception is planned in conjunction with Fountain’s annual “Taste of the Trail” event on Sept. 16.
