Winona County Historical Society offers tour of homes and history

WINONA, Min. (WKBT) - A Christmas House Tour was put on by the Winona County Historical Society Sunday.

The self-guided tour offered a chance to explore a church and six houses.

The oldest house on the tour was build in the 1870s. The newest was build only twenty years ago.

Mark Peterson is the president of the Historical Society is also Winona's mayor.

Peterson says the city soon thrived after being founded in the 1850s and was once the third largest city in Minnesota.

"At lot of the money was made here, particularly in the early lumber and flour milling and railroad businesses, and a lot of the grand homes and public buildings reflect that."

The tours cost $15 dollars, or $12 dollars for members of the historical society.

The Winona County History Center was also open for tours, and a coupon for the Museum Shop was included with the cost of the tours.
