It has been another remarkable and challenging year, but also one that has inspired gratitude, resilience, and newfound appreciation for family, friends, and community. Thank you for being a part of Ramsey County Historical Society’s community! 

RCHS continues to think about the many ways history can help bring our community together. In the next year, your donation will continue to support thousands of students, teachers, and families at Gibbs Farm, researchers at the Mary Livingston Griggs and Mary Griggs Burke Research Center, and members of the public attending programs throughout Ramsey County. Your donation will also help realize dozens of new initiatives designed to connect more people with Ramsey County history. These exciting projects include… 

  • introducing you to another member of the Gibbs family: Lillie Belle Gibbs. Next year, RCHS will publish a new historic fiction book, “Grasshoppers in My Bed,” based on the journal of 11-year- old Lillie. Look for this illustrated book to feature new stories about the Gibbs family, including Lillie’s first-hand account of Minnesota’s locust plagues of the 1870s.
  • celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul chapter of the Links, Inc. with a new exhibition. This professional women’s organization has included more than 60 members over the years, all dedicated to enriching, sustaining, and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry in the Twin Cities area.
  • creating all new winter programming at Gibbs Farm. With the renovation of the Red Barn complete, Gibbs Farm will, for the first time, have a comfortable and safe space to host classes and events during the winter months. 
  • redesigning the RCHS website to better reflect and serve the needs our community.
