In collaboration with Drekker Brewing Company, we’re presenting the second of our summer lecture series “Parlor Talks,” a combination of local history, food, and beer at the Hjemkomst Center.

On Tuesday, June 13, NDSU Forestry Professor Joe Zeleznik will be sharing the results of a recent study of local trees and log cabins. Zeleznik specializes in dendrochronology, or the study of tree rings, and his insight helps us understand Settlement-era Clay, Becker, and Norman counties through the analysis of the region’s earliest cabins and oldest trees.* The evening will include food from the Rex Cafe, local beer from Drekker Brewing Company, a 90-minute history, and tours of the HCSCC museum.

Admission is $15 ($10 for members) and that includes food and the first beverage (ages 21+).

*This project was funded by a grant from the Minnesota Historical Society through a legislative appropriation through the Arts and Culture Fund.
