Everyone at RCHS and the Gibbs Farm is grateful for the support of our members, donors, friends and neighbors in helping us reach so many students, families and adults in Ramsey County and beyond, sharing the multi-faceted stories of our Capital County.
And we want to particularly thank all of our individual volunteers and all the groups who have assisted RCHS and the Gibbs Farm this year, helping with everything from the gardens and the orchard, to cataloging our collections, to writing for Ramsey County History magazine, to making benches for guests, and helping at our festivals!
This year, your support for our Annual Appeal means more than ever!
There are so many interesting stories to tell about our very own Ramsey County history and thanks to your support RCHS is able to make these stories come alive for…
- Over 16,000 students receiving tours at the Gibbs Farm: Pathways to Dakota & Pioneer Life this year, subsidized more than 50% by RCHS members and donors.
- 1,000+ researchers that have used the newly re-dedicated Mary Livingston Griggs & Mary Griggs Burke Research Center, following the Mary Livingston Griggs & Mary Griggs Burke Foundation’s $1 million endowment gift dedicated to the RCHS collections.
- Hundreds of readers of RCHS’s most recent publication Custom House: Restoring a Saint Paul Landmark in Lowertown by James Stolpestad, which recently won the prestigious Leadership in History-Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History; as well as our award-winning quarterly publication Ramsey County History.
- Researchers and others who are now able to access our image collections online, due to the hard work of our staff and volunteers in preparing the images for upload to our PastPerfect site.
Please consider joining your friends and neighbors and become a member or make a donation to the Ramsey County Historical Society today.
Your support will make a lasting impact by helping us tell the stories that preserve our past, inform our present and inspire our future.
