  1. Wonderful exhibit! Like I was back in time. The tree was my favorite part. And right upstairs I was able to enjoy the stories of the 1965 Fridley tornadoes. I am embarrassed having just discovered this museum today after living in Fridley for so many decades. I will be back!!

  2. I need a clarification regarding the original Cub Foods in 1968. I remember that Fridley was the first Cub Foods on Osborne Rd across from Bobs Produce. I have read that it was first built in Stillwater but I also know the original owners were FROM Stillwater. Can you clarify ?
    Thanks

  3. If we want to write a check to purchase the books would we make the check out to the historical society or Allen Taylor? Can they be purchased the night of the anniversary presentation? Thanks in advance :) !
