June 8, Dual Exhibit Opening and Lunch and a Bite of History
On June 8, the Brown County Historical Society is holding an exhibit opening and a Lunch and a Bite of History. Learn about the history of the New Ulm Turnverein in Gut Heil! New Ulm as a Turner Town, presented by Daniel Hoisington from noon to 1 pm. Pre-registration is required as seating is limited! Then tour the exhibit of the same name in the museum. The exhibit is sponsored by the New Ulm Turnverein.

One Room Schoolhouse
The Brown County Historical Society is offering a living history camp for children grades K – 5. This is a one-day event held from 9:00am – 1:30pm on Tuesday June 20 or Thursday June 22 at the school house on the Brown County Fairgrounds. Cost of the program is $25.00 per student. Class size is limited.
Participants will spend the day going back in time to a one-room country school house in Brown County during the late 1800s. They will experience writing, music, games, reading, arithmetic lessons, chores and the love of learning that made the one-room school house a unique part of our heritage. Students are encouraged to wear clothes of the 19th century. This could be long skirts, aprons, bonnets, bib overalls or knickers. Each child should bring a cold lunch, possibly in a basket or pail.
Pre-registration is required. All registration forms must be returned along with the $25.00 fee to the museum by Friday, June 16, 2023. Registration forms are available at the museum at 2 North Broadway, New Ulm.
