BLUE EARTH COUNTY POOR FARM GOES TO THE ARTS

  • Thursday, March 18
  • 2 – 3:30 pm
  • Brian Frink, artist and owner

The Blue Earth County Poor Farm was built in 1877 south of town on what is now County Road 16/Stoltzman Road.  An addition in 1911 brought its resident population up to 44.  In 1955, it was sold and became the Oak Grove Retirement home.  In 1987, it became a private residence, and Brian Frink and Wilbur Neushwander-Frink have renovated it and turned the basement into a gallery/performance space for Rural America Contemporary Art (RACA).
