New quilt exhibit opens in Perham
The latest in a series of quilt exhibits at the History Museum of East Otter Tail County features a quilt with a unique and somewhat mysterious history.
The quilt top includes 12 embroidered squares with the names of women, the date 1908, and the place, Butler, Minn. Four of the women -- Martha, Pamelia, Etna and Elsie -- were members of the Pierce family, the first settlers to homestead in Butler Township.
