2019 calendars include a tribute to Kristina Gray

    The Polk County Historical Society will once again offer calendars for sale, this time focusing on the historic sites of Crookston. Local historian Janna Dinkel contributed her photos of landmarks like the Grand Theatre along with information on each place.

    The 2019 calendars also have a tribute to Kristina Gray, a Crookston author and historian, who passed away on May 31. Gray served on the PCHS board, published two books about the community and its people, and dedicated time to help restore the Carnegie Building on Ash Street. She also published weekly historical articles in the Crookston Daily Times and taught Composition at the University of Minnesota Crookston.

    PCHS calendars can be purchased during Ox Cart Days at the Carnegie Building or on eBay for $15.
