Afternoon Coffee Break: Heart of the Farm – Barns of Minnesota by Doug Ohman

Sep 11, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Lakefield Library

Enjoy a rural journey exploring the greatest of all rural icons, the barn. From the early days of statehood through the era of agri-business, our barns tell a story. This story will bring you back to the farm and explain the importance of our rural roots. Doug Ohman is a popular speaker, historian, and great storyteller. He is an expert photographer with deep roots in Minnesota. He has spent the last 30 years uncovering and bringing Minnesota history to life. Well known for his Minnesota Byways series of six books, Doug will tell you the real stories behind the pictures and make the photos come to life with humor and insight. Join us for this great event at the Lakefield Library on Wednesday, September 11th at 2 PM. This project was funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 with dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
