Hayes Scriven gave me a tour of the Northfield Historical Society‘s renovated Scriver Building this morning. He’s in preparation mode for the Open house and volunteer recognition wingding on Thursday (link to his blog post).

Hayes quickly pointed out the new men’s urinal to me, knowing my reputation. I was relieved.  He said he was placing the order today for a public restroom sign that will appear in one of the window panes of the exterior door (right photo).

Recalling the 1985 Demolition of St. Dominic Church

This spring, St. Dominic parish will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of their church. Nearly forgotten is the old church and the tumultuous debate that preceded its ultimate demolition in the Fall of 1985.  Tradition-minded parishioners joined with preservationists in the community to try to save the old church building. The contest attracted letters to the editor of the Northfield News from around the country, and newspaper articles in the Faribault Daily News and the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

With the help of Hayes Scriven and the Northfield Historical Society, I have assembled a handful of photos that perhaps explain why so many were so attached to the lovely old red-brick building. More photos and analysis of the episode available on my blog.

Hayes Scriven makes use of a QR code for the NHS ‘Next Level’ campaign

I got an email this morning from Northfield Historical Society Executive Director Hayes Scriven:

Hey Griff, I saw a story over the weekend about a town in Florida using a version of QR Codes for tourism.  That reminded me about your blog post: A QR Code makes its appearance in the January NEG. How else might the codes be used?

So I wanted to look into how they work.  I found out they are really easy, so I did this one for our capital campaign.  Now, that I know how easy they are I am going to do a few more for other areas of the museum.

Hayes attached a camera phone photo of a Next Level campaign flyer (with QR code on it) in the window of the NHS. I aimed my smartphone at the image attachment on my PC and within 5 seconds (photo above right), a YouTube video started to play, Taking Northfield History to the Next Level, featuring Corrine and Elvin Heiberg.

Scriver Building: the trees are down but the banner is up

The two trees in front of the Northfield Historial Society’s Scriver Building have been cut down (sob!). It looks so bare now from Bridge Square.

Photo album: NHS annual meeting 2010

Sue Scriven, Mark Scriven, Jenny Scriven,  Hayes Scriven Alas, I’m a week late with these photos from the Northfield Historical Society (NHS) Annual Meeting and Membership Ball and I didn’t take many as I’d hoped (too much socializing with my sweetie).

But there are a couple of keepers in the batch like the one of Chip DeMann with his registration table work crew and the one of NHS ED Hayes Scriven with his wife Jenny and his parents, Sue and Mark Scriven.
