Historical Center to Honor Veterans, Host Field Trip Fair

Northland Uncovered: Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center

SUPERIOR, Wis. – In Wisconsin, folks at the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center are working hard to share the wealth of history they have through many different ways.

The first is through a veterans event this week.

In collaboration with WDSE, the center interviewed several Vietnam veterans from around the Northland to create a documentary.

On Thursday, November 9, the historical center will show the two 40 minute documentaries.

Hayes Scriven, the Executive Director of the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Society, says documenting this oral history is important for our future.

The event starts at 6:00 p.m. After the showings, there will be coffee and conversation.

The second event is being held next week.

On Thursday, November 16, the center is hosting the first Northland Field Trip Expo.

This is for teachers, scout leaders, home school parents and more who are interested in taking children on education trips.

The Northland Field Trip Expo will feature Glensheen, Lake Superior Zoo, Richard I Bong Veterans Historical Center, Superior Public Museums (S.S. Meteor Maritime Museum, Fairlawn Museum, Old Firehouse and Police Museums), Lake Superior Railroad Museum, The Duluth Depot, The St. Louis County Historical Society, Douglas County Historical Society, Duluth Children’s Museum and Lake Superior Estuarine Research Reserve.

The Northland Field Trip Expo will be November 16 from 4:30-7:00 p.m.

Both events are free.
