NCHS Director Done After 9 Years 09 Dec 13

Nicollet County Historical Society Director Ben Leonard has his last day on the job on Friday after 9-and-a-half years, and the search for a replacement is underway. Leonard says that he is proud of the updates made to the Treaty Site History Center as well as an exhibit put together with Gustavus Adolphus College that will be shown by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC and New York. Leonard has accepted the Minnesota Historical Society Community and Outreach position held by Tom Elig for over 40 years. He will be traveling throughout the state for the new job, but will continue to live in St. Peter and serve on the St. Peter School Board.
