As Wayzata continues to change and evolve, Wayzata Historical Society will present the history of this corner. Beginning about 1890 and continuing to today we will look at the people and the businesses that were a central piece of Wayzata life.

Maybe you remember: Le Ski Hut, Connelly’s Drugs, Ted Asao, Jerry Manning, Dr. Martinson, The Music Box, Candlelight Floral, The Old Drug Store and the list goes on and on …

Join us Thursday, April 5 at 7:00 p.m. for stories and photos that highlight Wayzata through the years. As always, there is time to socialize after the program. This is a chance to learn about and celebrate our local history!
