Have a drink with friends while learning about Minnesota history in the beautiful setting of the Sibley Historic Site. A new topic will be offered each month. In September, Lacey Prpic Hedtke will discuss 19th century spirit photography, the practice of taking a ghostly image of a person with a recently deceased loved one. The photography became popular during the Civil War, at a time when society was constantly exposed to violence and the massive casualties of the war.

Light food and one drink ticket will be provided with each paid admission for ages 21+. This program is offered by the Dakota County Historical Society.
