Rochester Businessman Creates Endowment for History

Jeffrey G. Allman Fund to Benefit Minnesota Historical Society

The Minnesota Historical Society recognized Jeff Allman, CEO of Allman & Associates at their annual Minnesota Legacy luncheon in St. Paul on Monday, Oct. 8. With a personal and business interest in history and commitment to historical restoration and preservation, including many historic downtown Rochester projects, Mr. Allman has established a named endowment fund, the Jeffrey G. Allman Fund, through a planned gift that will support the mission of the Society.

Founded in 1849, the Society has been collecting, preserving and interpreting our state’s cultural resources. The Society celebrates the commitment of generations of donors whose support has resulted in one of the most respected historical societies in the nation.
