What is the Gunflint Trail Historical Society?
The Gunflint Trail Historical Society is a non-profit organization which oversees the management of Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. The Society works to preserve Gunflint Trail history, with an ongoing commitment to the maintenance and improvement of Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. Chik-Wauk receives no government funding and is supported by donations, memberships, admissions gift shop sales and grants.
If you are interested in the history of the Gunflint Trail the Society is having a monthly meeting July 13th located at the A. Paul & Carol Schaap Community Center which is located mid-trail (Fire Hall #1) starting at 1:30 pm. If you would like to join The Gunflint Trail Historical Society we will have membership forms available.
We hope you will join us for this meeting and bring a friend along. There will be special remembrances for the Gunflint Trail Residents who have passed away this year.
Kid’s Day has been a huge success if you want to have an activity on a Tuesday stop on over. Kathy runs this program all day long from 10 am to 5 pm. We have journal making, tad pole collecting, voyageur dress up along with letter boxing (a type of Geo Caching). Children on Tuesdays are free to the museum, adults are $3 per person but if you are a member of the Gunflint Trail Historical Society you get in free.
Also on Tuesday’s from 2 pm to 3 pm we have a presentation by the U.S. Forest Service located on the front porch of Chik-Wauk Museum each week is a different presentation. Tuesday, July 14 will be on animal tracks.
Hope to see you at our monthly meeting July 13th starting at 1:30 pm at the Schaap Community Center.
