Hear from historian and NDSU doctoral candidate Robert Foresman as he shares the history of early Moorhead preacher Oscar H. Elmer. Elmer came to Moorhead in October 1871 when Moorhead was little more than a shanty town. He immediately went to work establishing the first church in the area. During his lecture, Foresman will discuss Elmer's work as a preacher as well as the other areas of early Moorhead that he influenced during his time in the city.

After the lecture guests are welcome to enjoy refreshments, mingle, and explore one of Moorhead's most historic homes.
