The 17th Annual Bus Trip to Minneapolis/St. Paul is planned for Oct. 16-18. This bus tour was organized in 2002 by Maury Oehler. It was his goal to help support the Prairie du Chien Historical Society in its efforts to preserve local history. The hospital building of the 2nd Ft. Crawford and the Museum of Prairie du Chien are owned and operated by the society. Since 2002 this three-day- two-night bus trip has generated several thousand dollars to keep the museum a viable and valuable city treasure. In 2016 Maury passed the reigns of this fundraiser to Janet Finn. With the help of Maury, she has been able to plan three successful trips and has planned another for 2019. These trips have always included historical, cultural, theatrical and mystery venues. This year’s venues include three plays: Mamma Mia! at the Chanhassen Theater, Gloria-A Life at the History Theater and A New Bermuda Triangle at a small theater called Day Trippers; two Historical sites — St. Paul Union Depot and The Mayowood Mansion; one conservatory and two mystery stops.

The bus leaves from the Tourist Information Center on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 7:30 a.m. and returns to Prairie du Chien on Friday, Oct. 18, at about 8:30 p.m. The bus holds 56 passengers and the Society would like to fill them all. Please consider coming along by reserving your spot with a $100 deposit by Sept. 10, by calling the museum at (608) 326-6960 or making your deposit at the museum, 717 S. Beaumont Rd., Prairie du Chien. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
