Keep village at fairgrounds

Erin Creed, Bowbells

I am 26 years old and am proud to say I was born and raised in Minot. I am currently living in Bowbells, which is an hour northwest of Minot. I have always enjoyed the Ward County Historical Society located at the fairgrounds. I have been going there since I was 13 years old, and am a huge fan! In fact, I enjoy it so much that my husband I and chose to be married at the church on the Society’s grounds. However, the 2012 flood had other ideas.

Also, I am a fan of the Ward County Historical Society on Facebook. I was upset recently by the fact that they have been asked to move by the fair director. One of the best parts about going to the fair is getting to tour all the buildings, and step back into history. I have two young children who I would love to take there when they are old enough to appreciate all of the history enclosed. Please do not let this woman take control of this great abundance of history Minot has to offer. Please encourage people to let them stay at the fairgrounds, like they have for so many years. Thank you for your time.
