Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

History Revealed: A Toast to History at Waldmann Series
Thursday, October 11, 2018
Waldmann Brewery & Wurstery

Kristin Anderson, Building for Beer in St. Paul’s West End

Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

Even more than we see today, the West Seventh Street area was once dotted with breweries, biergartens, mansions, and saloons, all connected to the brewing industry. This presentation focuses on the early built environment of beer in St. Paul’s West End.

Kristin Anderson is a professor at Augsburg University, where she teaches art history and architectural history. She is writing a book on the history of local sports facilities, and she gives tours at Target Field and for the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota.

Registration is needed to attend presentations. Space is limited, first-come, first served.
Presentation is free.
Register online here.
Or call 651-222-0701 or email membership@rchs.com.

It’s RCHS Day at Waldmann Brewery & Wurstery!

On the second Thursday of each month, 10% of all sales to RCHS members and their guests will be donated to the Ramsey County Historical Society!

RCHS members and supporters are encouraged to come and enjoy a lunch/dinner/drink at Waldmann throughout the day, or time your dinner so that you can stay for the presentation immediately after. So come on in and raise a toast to history and support RCHS!

Mention that you are a member, supporter or friend of RCHS to your server, and they will make sure that your tab is counted toward Waldmann’s support.
