The Northfield Daughters of the American Revolution Josiah Edson Chapter presented the Historic Preservation Recognition Award to author Doug Meyer on Wednesday at recognition ceremony held at the Steele County Historical Society.
Meyer is a longtime historical advocate, Owatonna resident and author of "Forgotten Memories of Minnesota and Steele County."
“We each have our own ‘forgotten’ memories,” he said. "To me they are 'memories,' but to most, they are 'forgotten.'”
The Historic Preservation Recognition Award recognizes and honors an individual or group that has done recent remarkable volunteer work at the community level.
