We are all experiencing a historic time as we navigate the effects of the COVID-19 health crisis. Local history is your history and The Winona County Historical Society is hoping you can share your story for future generations.
While the WCHS can’t preserve everything, they are interested in collecting stories, observations, images, sound or video files of COVID-19 effects on Winona County. In the future, they hope to collect objects, diaries, and other documentation too.
Selections of submitted material through this form, or by email or mail, will be shared publicly though the WCHS website and social media accounts. A staff curated representative sampling of submitted materials will be housed in the WCHS Laird Lucas Library and Archives for future study.
