May 27--Kids are invited to search out answers on a fun History Mystery tour this summer. Travel back in time to the origins of East Otter Tail County at the History Museum in Perham, answer a few questions and get a sweet reward.

The game is free for kids to play, and admission to the museum is free too. The activity is part of full schedule of events organized by the History and Cultural Association of East Otter Tail County (HACA). The nonprofit oversees the History Museum and Historical Society of East Otter Tail County, Pioneer Park and In Their Own Words Veterans Museum.

"The History Mystery Tour a great summer time activity with an educational focus," said Darla Ellingson, History and Cultural Center CEO. "Adults might also learn a thing or two!"

The History Mystery Tour runs now through Sept. 1, 2014.

The quaint museum is in the old library building, and shares the block with the new library and a city park in between First and Second Avenue NE in Perham. Museum hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 4pm and 9am to 1pm on Saturday. For more information on the History Mystery Tour, call the museum at 218-346-7676, or check out their Facebook page for the latest updates at

HACA has a regional focus of East Otter Tail County, but its programs serve visitors from around the state and around the globe with the goals of developing an understanding of the past, celebrating our cultural heritage, and exploring future possibilities that strengthen the bonds of community.
