    I attended this and it was wonderful! So much information and interesting stories. I’d like to do more research on this beautiful, old piece of history.

    I’d like to learn a bit more about the hospital myself – particularly which power company served them prior to 1953 – whether they were one of Otter Tail Power’s few “industrial” customers within Fergus Falls or if they were the largest account on the former Fergus Falls municipal power utility’s system.
