Went to see the ORPHAN TRAIN story by Patty Lynch, the story about the Orphan Trains that were filled with immigrant children, slaves,Native people taken mainly from the New York city between 1855 and 1920. Very moving and thought provoking well worth seeing.

We have been to shows at the History Theater several times and have been impressed each time. Most recently was Teen Idol: the Bobby Vee story. This was s really fun show for all ages and the music & singing we're very good.

We just saw the musical, Glensheen, based on the murders that took place at the Glensheen mansion in Duluth in 1977. The play is historically accurate, interesting, and dare I say, funny. I remember many of the events but also learned so much more. The...More
