Emily’s History on the Move
Web posted March 16, 2021
On March 8, 2021, the old Emily candy store was moved behind the old post office. Shari and Rob Orstad reached out to the city because they wanted to donate this part of history to the community. The city recommended contacting GoNorthMn.
GoNorthMn started working on and finding the dollars to move the building. To help pay the moving fee, Orstad's donated cash as did the Emily Fire Department and ECTC.
GoNorthMn has a bench, bike rack, planting rings, plus a gaga ball pit ready to be placed by this building for public use. The dollars for these amenitities came from IRRRB and Sourcewell (Region 5) grants. The candy store may be used for pop up sales or seasonal rental space.
Volunteers will be needed to help with the restoration of the building, finishing the old post office and the placing of the above items. Please email info@GoNorthMN.org or call Jan Mosman 612-419-1787 or Kathy Hachey 218-763-3333.
