This website is the collaboration of a number of parties. Beginning in mid 90s Social Studies instructor Kelly Mesker began teaching a Local History course at Parkers Prairie High School. Over the course of nearly twenty years, Mesker and his students accumulated a lot of information and a lot of artifacts. A letter Mesker wrote to the Parkers Prairie Independent this past spring about his time teaching this course can be found here.
The purpose of this site is to share slices of this accumulated history. The process will ongoing. The Minnesota History course and the Parkers Prairie History Club will be digging through the files and adding to the website. Please feel free to contact David O'Brien with questions.
