The Becker County Museum in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota engages the community with a cemetery walk held at the Eksjo Cemetery near Lake Park, Minnesota. The walk is like a living history experience as re-enactors dress up as people, often relatives of theirs, who are buried in the cemetery.
About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund
In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share. This amendment to the Minnesota Constitution, Article XI, Section 15 is commonly referred to as the Legacy Amendment. As a result of this vote, Prairie Public and other Minnesota public television stations are entrusted to support the overall goals of the Legacy Amendment and to help preserve Minnesota arts, history and cultural heritage, while making the content readily available to viewers like you.
We are excited to be able to provide you with quality legacy programming through local series and documentaries, while also featuring this legacy content online. If you have any questions about these or other local productions at Prairie Public, send us an email or write us at the address below.
