INDICE DE GALERIAS
For more than 40 years, it's been one of the main attractions at the Mower County Historical Society.
But, now, it's returning to its rightful owners.
Today, the mower county board officially returned the Herald J. Williams American Indian collection back to his family.
The historical society started this action as a part of its deaccessioning process.
While it was a tough decision, society leaders say it will allow them to focus on their long-term vision.
"It's just one of those things where we've gotten to a point we're growing so much, and were looking to focus in on Mower County items,” Executive Director Dustin Heckman said. “This collection didn't fit that criteria. And so, we've chosen to work with the county board and the family to return it to them as part of our original agreement with them.”
He adds they are very grateful to the Williams family for allowing them to show the collection for all of these years.
The final transfer of the collection will be completed in the coming months.
