History Revealed: A Toast to History at Waldmann Series
Thursday, December 13, 2018
Natalie Heneghan, Noticing the New Deal
Waldmann Brewery & Wurstery
Free and open to all.
Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.
From post offices to sewer systems, public pools to campgrounds, public housing to park pavilions, evidence of the New Deal, a series of federal programs in response to the Great Depression, is everywhere.
How to we uncover these places, and why should we care? What stories can we learn from them? New Deal-era public works projects are not only living reminders of this vast system of federal programs; they also set the stage for conversations and conflicts over segregation, workers’ rights, and women’s work.
Finally, learn how you can get involved in in finding and documenting New Deal projects. Speaker Natalie Heneghan is the Minnesota Associate for the Living New Deal, a project to map New Deal sites all over the country.
Registration is needed to attend presentations. Space is limited, first-come, first served.
Presentation is free.
Registration form is available here.
