Endangered properties exhibit set in Fergus

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. – The Otter Tail County Historical Museum here will host the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota’s traveling exhibition “Minnesota’s 10 Most Endangered Properties.”

An open house for the exhibit is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 5 at the museum.

Since 1995, the alliance has compiled an annual list of the state’s most threatened historic buildings, sites and structures. The goal is to raise awareness and focus public attention on favorable outcomes that can be achieved through a preservation approach.

Included in the 2011 list is the Fergus Falls State Hospital. Along with the exhibit, information from the Friends of the Kirkbride will be included.
