The Pipestone County Museum invites you to join us for the Building Boom! The Landscape of the Sioux Quartzite Industry exhibit opening in conjunction with its Annual Business Meeting on Saturday, February 8th from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.

Understanding that due to busy schedules, joining us for a traditional Annual Meeting or a formal exhibit opening reception might not fit on your calendar, we are combining the two.  Please stop into the Museum at your convenience to see the new exhibit and visit with friends over coffee and rolls.  Members of the Historical Society are also invited to participate in the short business meeting at 10am.

The new exhibit focuses on the height of the quartzite quarrying industry in Pipestone County in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  Information on multiple quarries that existed in the county, and the companies and promoters that shipped the Sioux Quartzite throughout the country will be included.  Numerous photographs of buildings in Jasper and Pipestone erected from the local quartzite, as well as examples of the stone and stonecutter’s tools will be featured.
