MN Historical Society reopening sites Saturday

Posted at 4:09 PM on July 20, 2011 by Paul Tosto (0 Comments)

The Minnesota Historical Society gets more than half its operating budget from the state. So when state government shut down, the group suspended operations at its museums, library and historic sites -- including Split Rock Lighthouse.

It was one of those relatively small consequences of the shutdown, but it was sad to think of those iconic sites -- especially Split Rock -- closed to Minnesotans in the summer months.

With a state budget in place, though, the historical society said it will reopen its sites starting Saturday.
