JUNE & JERRY FRITZEN:
We are handicapped accessible in all buildings and the restrooms. We also have two wheelchairs that can be used.
Our next project:
We are working on completing our 4th building which is 70 ft by 172 ft. By the spring of 2013 we should have it ready for our first visitors. We have also installed a security system in all buildings with a grant from the North Dakota State Historical Society. With these updates we have made a nice larger meeting area and we now have wireless internet in the building.
We have also started mapping all the cemetaries in Sargent County with pictures of the grave markers. We hope to be able to add a copy of the obits we can find to the project also. By the end of 2013 we hope to have that project all on computer for you to look at.
The County Newspapers that we have date back to the early 1900's.
Most of these are on Microfilm, and a Reader-Printer is available for you to do your research on. Please call or e-mail, and we can help you with your search for a small fee.
