History Revealed: House Museums

September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

Krista Finstad Hanson, Minnesota’s Historic House Museums

History Revealed Series
September 28, 2017
Thursday, 7 p.m.
Ramsey County Library – Roseville

Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for a new series, History Revealed, featuring the best of local history authors talking about a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

Join Krista Finstad Hanson for an illustrated talk tracing the history and variety of Minnesota’s historic house museums — from majestic landmarks like Duluth’s Glensheen Mansion and St. Paul’s James J. Hill House, to smaller residences lovingly restored by local communities and historical societies like the Gibbs Farm in Falcon Heights. Ms. Finstad Hanson will illustrate her talk with exterior images of these 19th- and 20th-century architectural gems. Following the talk, Hanson will answer questions and sign copies of her book, Minnesota Open House which will be available for purchase.

Krista Finstad Hanson is the author of two travel guides to museums in historic houses: Minnesota Open House and Wisconsin’s Historic Houses and Living History Museums. She has also written a children’s science textbook, The Great Barrier Reef: A Natural Wonder. Her writings focus on architectural history, travel, and homes, and since 1992 she has written for such a number of local and national publications. Krista has been deeply involved in local history research through her involvement with the Hamline Midway History Corps. She works part-time as a teacher, part-time as a writer, and full-time as a mom to two kids.
