Following the success of last summer’s Artist on Main Street projects, Faribault Main Street had the oppritunity to work with artists and creatives in the Faribault area for a second summer. Be on the look out for these great projects! [Read more…]
Twenty five benches will tell the stories of Faribault’s history, allowing visitors and locals alike to stroll downtown Faribault and learn about days gone by. From Elizabeth Strohfus a W.A.S.P. pilot to Marlon Brando, talented artisans, Farmer Seed and Nursery, the fur trade in Faribault, and so much more. Faribault’s history includes milling, a quarry industry, schools, the tilt-a-whirl, plus the development of the downtown. It is an expansive history touching on so many areas of interest, and that will bestow a sense of pride into the residents of Faribault and impress visitors.
Benches help build a sense of community, offering a resting spot between visiting shops, a place to sit and take in the stunning architecture in the historic district, or step back into time by reading the historical markers on each bench.
The work on the benches has been done by the Faribault Main Street organization, under the umbrella of the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism. Sponsorships will be available to help support the bench project. Businesses and individuals may sponsor a bench at a cost of $1200 for a five year term, or $3000 for a 25 year term. This fee helps to cover design work, fabrication, instillation, and maintenance of the benches. Sponsors will be noted with a 4×6 plaque in the upper right hand corner of the bench and will be seen by each person who rests at the bench or takes a walk stopping at each bench to learn more of Faribault’s rich history.
Businesses and individuals may sponsor a bench. To reserve a bench sponsorship, email Kelly@faribaultmn.org or call 507-334-4381.
