Brainerd will be celebrating history week June 16 - 22.  I am so excited that Northern Pacific Center is hosting Tuesday, June 17 as Railroad Day.  The day will start with tours and a gathering honoring Brainerd pioneers' descendants as well as a classic car show held where the old roundhouse used to sit.  During the afternoon we will open up the newly renovated East end of the Blacksmith Shop where The NP Event Space is now located.  It will be open to the public from 3 pm to 5 pm for viewings of local history displays as well as for those who want to take a peek at the space itself.  The highlight of our evening will be a Gala complete with a sit down dinner by Prairie Bay, live music from Sonic Love Child, silent auctions featuring a few pieces of railroad history and more!  All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Crow Wing County Historical Society.  We can't wait to share our newly renovated space with the Brainerd Lakes and all of greater Minnesota!

The evening will be filled with great entertainment and other fun additions including a photo booth, sounding of the old "dinner bell" whistle and more!  Come in your favorite formal attire or style your outfit to the theme of Railroad Gold.  We can't wait to share an evening full of history while socializing and reminiscing about the railroad and what part it played in the history of Brainerd.
