Plant Sale to Benefit Morrison County Historical Society

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS) has made adjustments to its spring plant sale. Rather than holding the sale at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum, which is currently closed as part of Minnesota’s attempt to limit public gatherings, the plant sale will be hosted outside the homes of two MCHS board members.

Camille Warzecha and Pat Quinn have served on the MCHS board for years. The plant sale is a way they can combine their twin passions for gardening and local history. They and other area gardeners have been preparing plants for the sale for the past few weeks. The sale is especially known for offering perennials, like lilies and hostas. Cottage garden-type plants will also be offered.

The plant sale will take place over two days, Friday, May 29 and Saturday, May 30. On Friday, Pat and Camille, each at their respective homes, will be available to sell plants from 10 a.m. -7 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday.

One plant sale location is on the west side of Little Falls. The other is on the east side. Call 320-632-4007 for exact locations. (For privacy reasons, we are not broadcasting the addresses on the internet.) Please leave a message and staff will return your call. Or send an email to contactstaff@morrisoncountyhistory.org for addresses.

***While attending the plant sale, MCHS encourages wearing masks and maintaining the appropriate physical distance of 6-10 feet. In order to eliminate making change, plants will be priced in whole dollars. Cash and checks will be accepted.***

Proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the Morrison County Historical Society’s mission of preserving and sharing county history.

For further information, call the Weyerhaeuser Museum at 320-632-4007 and leave a message or email contactstaff@morrisoncountyhistory.org. Staff will respond as soon as possible.
