We are looking for tour guides at the Northfield Historical Society to tell our story of the bank that was robbed by the James and Younger Gang. We call ourselves the Adult Posse and are always looking for new members to help spread the word about the momentous events in Northfield on September 7, 1876.
Those interested in the Adult Posse meet for training one day a week (Tuesdays) for one and a half hours. The training sessions begin April 2nd and run to the end of May. We will have lively discussions about the James and Younger Gang, from their violent background to their association with Minnesota and beyond. You don’t have to be a history buff to join. All that is required is an interest in telling our story to visitors from all over the world. Please consider joining our posse so we can nab all those visitors riding into Northfield and tell them our story of this unique town and its brave citizens. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a tour guide in the Northfield Historical Society or wish more information, please contact Earl Weinmann (507.645-9488).
