The Waseca County History Center will open its doors on Saturdays, 12-3 p.m. in addition to regular hours during the run of its current exhibit, “Collecting Herter’s”. The exhibit previewed on Friday to area sponsors, participating Herter’s collectors and All-Event Fundraiser ticket holders, then to the public on Saturday and Sunday, August 23 and 24.

For a time, Herter’s, Inc. was known to every serious and amateur sportsman in the country and beyond as the ultimate source for anything a guy would need to fish, hunt, camp, trap, canoe, or snowmobile. Between 1937 and 1980, George Herter merchandized with an entertaining catalog that gave Brown Printing its start, printing over one million catalogs annually at its peak. Herter’s, Inc. was included in the Minnesota Historical Society’s 150 Things About Minnesota exhibit during the Minnesota Sesquicentennial celebration in 2008.
