Water Street USA

Monday, November 10 - 7PM, Excelsior Brewery - 421 Third Street, Excelsior

In November we venture down "Water Street USA." As Excelsior's Water Street bristles with new changes, proprietors of Leipold’s, Darel and LaVerna Leipold, will open up their vast private collection of historic photos to show how Water Street has changed, and in many ways resisted change, over the last century and more.

Join us at the Excelsior Brewery at 7PM for this free program.


We are looking for speakers for upcoming gatherings. Please email info@elmhs.org if you have a suggestion.
