Project: Bremer County Cruise Thru History
Bremer County Community Foundation & Readlyn Community Fund
What better way to learn about local culture and the past than by “Cruising Thru History”. The Historical Society held fun educational events where people cruise via classic car or daily driver to designated historic stops in Bremer County communities. Participants were issued passport booklets to receive a stamp at each stop and to add photos from their “trip.” An informational brochure led the participants to sites where speakers shared historical facts. Two car cruises were held in 2021 in Waverly and Janesville with more tours planned for this year.
