Last year, MALHM held its first workshop for house museums at Ramsey House in St. Paul. The experiment was a success, and the second annual workshop is slated for Thursday, Oct. 26, at two Little Falls sites with historic homes: Linden Hill Estate and the Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site.
The workshop will include tours of both sites as well as sessions on using evaluation methods to improve programming and creating living history tours. Attendees also will have a chance to network with house museum colleagues. Save the date now; more details coming soon.
The workshop is being planned by MALHM's House Museum Affinity Group leadership: Chair Jayne Becker, Vice Chair Holly Johnson (Hormel Historic Home - Austin), Secretary Milissa Brooks-Ojibway (Glensheen - Duluth), and Eve Burlingame (Eidem Homestead - Brooklyn Park). Thank you to Julia Mueller of Linden Hill and Melissa Peterson of the Minnesota Historical Society's Lindbergh site for their support.

The Legacy Strategic Agenda (LSA) Collaborative, a partnership between the Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums (MALHM) and the Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) invites you to take this short survey, to tell us about your experience with the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage (Legacy) Grants program. Your feedback will be used to help us improve and communicate our services to you. Your responses are anonymous. At the end of the survey, you may choose to enter your name in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to the MNHS store. Please complete this survey by August 28, 2017.
Share your knowledge with your peers in Minnesota's local history community and present a session at MALHM's 2018 Annual Meeting and Conference, which will be held April 25-26 at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall.
Deadline to submit a presenter proposal is Friday, Oct. 6. MALHM moved up the deadline this year so that it can post a completed schedule three months in advance of the conference.
The presenter application lists possible topics suggested by attendees at the 2017 conference, but other topics appropriate for small and medium-sized museums will also be considered. Please contact either Conference Chair Jill Wohnoutka or MALHM Coordinator Marci Matson if you have any questions.
