Little-known stories connect Excelsior with historic events such as the Minneapolis truck drivers’ strike and riot, the origin of Roller Derby and early steps towards equality for women. A cow, some very productive bees, a midnight snack and one particular spot on a roller coaster all contributed to tragic outcomes. Attendees can learn how area families responded when faced with the unthinkable.
