    During the Great Depression, communities all over the United States, including many in Stearns County, benefitted from New Deal programs. The newest exhibit at the Stearns History Museum – on loan from the Minnesota Historical Society and supplemented by artifacts and stories from our own area – will explore the impact of New Deal programs on us and people like us. It will be on display at the Stearns History Museum, June 8 – August 4, 2013.

    New Deal programs funded the painting of murals and the paving of roads, writing about agriculture and county records, shoring up Selke Field, planting trees, underwriting gardening and canning projects, taking electricity to farmhouses and barns, among other projects! Few people in Stearns County in the mid-1930s went untouched by the New Deal.

    “Uncle Sam’s New Deal” illuminates the federal government’s role in reviving Minnesota communities 70 years ago. Photography, interviews and New Deal film footage allow us to see how “Uncle Sam” has lead efforts to simulate Minnesota’s communities in the past.


    Minnesota Landmarks in partnership with the Minnesota History Center created this exhibit. It will travel to venues throughout Minnesota. We hope you’ll get a chance to visit it when it’s in St. Cloud.
