Chasing our tales: Museum and its volunteers preserve Perham area’s stories

Email

Editor’s note: This is the first in a new series of stories spotlighting some of the lesser-known or often oveshadowed people, groups and places in Perham.

Tucked away on First Avenue North in Perham is a structure built in 1887.

Its facade consists of stones that were hand-picked by farmers from their fields.

This building was once an Episcopal church, and then a library. Currently, this historic location is home to the History Museum of East Otter Tail County.
