Crow Wing County Historical

Society receives $7,000 grant

The Crow Wing County Historical Society has received a $7,000 historical and cultural grant from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, funded by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment.


Rep. John Ward, DFL – Baxter, announced the award; congratulated the historical society; and thanked the organization for its work in securing the grant.

The money will allow the Crow Wing County Historical Society to hire conservators to restore an oil painting of Lyman P. White, an important historical figure in Brainerd. White is often called the “Father of Brainerd.” He arrived in the area in 1870 and built the city’s first residence. White passed away in 1902.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
