Gift shop has Becker County-made items

The Becker County Museum is expanding its gift shop product line. In addition to its Minnesota-themed gifts and fun items for kids, the gift shop is featuring items relevant to Becker County.

Visitors can find an abundance of reading materials including fiction and non-fiction books about the area, Becker County community history books and photo books. Newly added book "Circle of Life" by Don Westrum is a great summer read. And the much missed Wilcox's "A Pioneer History of Becker County Minnesota" is slated to be available in July.

The gift shop also recently added a line of locally made hand-poured soy candles with great success. Interested artisans should contact museum manager, Carrie Johnston at or call 218-847-2938.

The Becker County Museum & Research Library and the Gift Shop are open Tuesday through Saturday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
