'Minnesota's Lost Towns' author to speak July 8 in Crosslake

Rhonda Fochs

Rhonda Fochs, author of "Minnesota's Lost Towns," will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 8, at the Crosslake Historic Log Village.

Journey to the past and visit more than 125 northern Minnesota lost towns. Read what created them, how they grew and prospered, why they died, where they are located and what you'll see there today. Learn the stages of a "boom and bust" cycle and how lost towns are classified according to their physical remnants. View the comparative "then and now" photo display of some of the historical townsites.

Fochs, a former history teacher, will share the stories and tales of the people and places of Minnesota's past. Bring memories and stories of your own places of the past to share.

The Crosslake Historic Log Village is at 35404 County Road 3. Refreshments will be served.
