Walk into Old Frontenac

Goodhue County Historical Society will host Walk into Local History 10 a.m. to noon and 1-3 p.m. June 10. Invite friends and family to hear the stories of 19th century Frontenac while exploring the exterior of a few of the most famous homes during the thought-provoking tour.

Native Americans inhabited the land for hundreds of years before the French established a fort near modern-day Frontenac. Years after the French left, the Garrard family would shape and name Frontenac during the latter half of the 19th century. After Israel Garrard's death in 1901, Frontenac resisted industrialization and modernization, maintaining a strong echo of its 19th century heritage to this day.
