Announcement on Opening Delay We wish we could have you visit our sites; Historic Chippewa City, a pioneer village, Swensson Farm Museum and the Lac qui Parle Mission. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all sites are closed. Events are postponed or on hold until it is safe to open. The Horse Power Event will be held on September 12, 2020 10 AM-4PM Outdoors only. See poster below! To protect the safety of staff, volunteers and visitors, we are closed to the public until we have time to get safety protocols in place once cases in our county have declined for a period of two weeks. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you to the Village, Farm and Mission in the future!
