Glimpse into our history

Steven McCormack, Des Lacs

As an educator, I would like to express to the Ward County Historical Society my appreciation for their efforts toward preserving memories, and for providing area students the opportunity to learn more of the history, some of it unique, to our area. The Pioneer Village offers our students a wonderful “hands-on” glimpse into the past. The children also can’t help but come away with a greater appreciation for the sacrifices our ancestors made, so that we can enjoy the lifestyle we do today in our great state of North Dakota. I view the Pioneer Village as a unique aspect of the fair, something which merits further improvement, perhaps in partnership with the fair. I wish the Ward County Historical Society success in continuing to improve their “display of history” at its present location.
