HISTORY MYSTERY OF THE WEEK: Name this building
Name this building (Hint: It’s pictured on its grand opening, June 30, 1888, with the Perham and New York Mills Brass Bands)
‘History Mystery’ is a weekly feature of the Perham Focus. Working in partnership with the History Museum of East Otter Tail County, we will publish a ‘mystery photo’ each week, challenging you, our readers, to answer a question about it. If you have a personal story that relates to the photo, or have new details about its contents, we will work with the museum to have that additional information put on record.
Contact us at 346-5900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Jackie Lachowitzer, who was the first person to correctly guess the names of at least three of the people pictured in last week’s History Mystery: Elmer and Ruby Praeuner, Gary Gergum, Gerald Matz, Floyd Brown and Joe Lachowitzer.
Correction: Last week, we incorrectly stated that there were no correct answers to the January 9 History Mystery. in fact, Merle Sherman called in the correct answer.
