The Cook County Historical Society has just completed a long-range planning project for the Society's four historic sites in and around Grand Marais.
There will be an open house at the museum in downtown Grand Marais on Saturday, November 16th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. to present the long range plans and seek volunteers to serve on task forces for each of the historic sites.
The sites include the Lighthouse Keeper's House (museum), Chippewa City Church, the Bally Blacksmith Shop, and the Replica Fish House and Fishing Tug "Neegee."
