Students take a walking tour of historic Perham
Chris Schuelke, director of the Otter Tail County Historical Society, provided an interesting perspective on the history and architecture of Main Street in Perham during a walking tour on May 30.
A dozen residents and 16 Perham High School students, accompanied by their instructor, Shelley Bunkowske, took the two-hour tour. Students later said they enjoyed hearing from the tour participants; learning from the multi-generational group was one of the highlights of the evening. Students’ interest piqued when learning about Perham’s old butcher shop, and a lynching that occurred.
