May 24: What’s in a Name? Part I
Join us for Part I of a series where we explore many of the streets and parks around White Bear Lake and investigate how they got their names through the years. From Murray to Banning and West to Matoska, what’s in a name?

June 28: The Story of the Geist Gazebo
The Geist Gazebo was built as a wedding gift by Thomas Erd for his daughter Anna in 1883 on the south shore of White Bear Lake. A century later it had been moved to Matoska Park and has become a much loved community landmark. Join us as we share the story of this iconic structure’s past and what is happening to ensure its future.

This series is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
