Brunsville, Craig, Struble highlighted in museum program

Wednesday, March 9, 2005

The Plymouth County communities of Brunsville, Craig and Struble and area will be featured during the "Only Yesterday" program at the Plymouth County Historical Museum in Le Mars Sunday, March 13.

Doors to the museum will open at 1 p.m., with the program getting underway at 2 p.m. in the Music Room. Slides of various scenes from yesteryear will be shown.

Anyone having old postcards of the Brunsville, Craig and Struble areas is asked to contact the museum immediately.

Also on the afternoon program will be videos of the Brunsville 75th anniversary celebration held in 1986. Many of the videos have never been seen by Brunsville residents, according to Carol Schlotfeldt who will make the afternoon presentation. The videos, created by Carol's late husband Ray, include a queen contest, oldtimers' ballgame, a parade and a bridal gown style show.

Popcorn once again will be the "Only Yesterday" menu.

Seeing Plymouth County through old postcards and movies will continue to be the theme. An "Old-time Theatre" has been created in the Home Room for more comfortable viewing of Le Mars movies from the 1920s and 1930s. A few of the old theater seats from the Le Mars Postal Playhouse are now in use.

Admission to the museum is free. An elevator now serves all five floors of exhibits. The museum, which serves the entire county, is located at 335 First Ave. S.W. in Le Mars.
