It's not everyday the Smithsonian rolls into town displaying the pieces of their history collection. When the Smithsonian name is attached to any exhibit or event, take notice. The Wright County Historical Society is hosting The Way We Worked, a traveling exhibit set up in cooperation with the Minnesota Humanities Center and the Smithsonian. The showcase examines how American workers, from doctors to police to factory workers, work their occupations to keep America moving. This exhibit will only be touring five Minnesota communities.
