Visitors invited to experience Lindbergh’s life during ‘Living History Day’

Visitors are invited to the Charles Lindbergh Historic Site to learn what life was like for Charles Lindbergh when he was growing up on the family farm a century ago, during World War I.

A costumed character portraying Lindbergh’s mother, Evangeline, will provide insights into her son’s interests in aviation, technology and the natural environment. Visitors will also have the chance to hear inside stories about the Lindbergh family from Gustav Gerts, who lived in the tenant’s house in 1917-1918, and Mary Hannah Stevens, whose family rented from the Lindberghs from 1906 to 1913. Visitors also have the chance to try their hand at some of the chores young Lindbergh did around the farm. Come and experience the life of an ordinary boy who grew up to do extraordinary things.

Living History Day will be held Saturday, July 20, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., with the last tour leaving at 4 p.m.

The Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site is a National Historic Landmark, operated by the Minnesota Historical Society, and located at 1620 Lindbergh Dr. S.W., Little Falls, across from Charles A. Lindbergh State Park.
