Summer Season Information

Summer is here again, and so is our busy season. The Mower County Fair runs August 11-16, and all of our buildings will be open from 1:00am to 6:00pm each day of the fair, with no charge for admission.

Our ever-popular LunchBox History Series is on again, with a different presentation on the fourth Thursday of every month at 12:00pm; also, our partnership with the Hormel Historic Home and the Austin Public Library continues with a Hormel Historic Home and Austin Public Library continues with a History Happy Hour at the Hormel Historic Home at 5:30pm on the second Monday of each month.

This is also a great time of the year to do some historical research, and our research library and archives are open from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day.
