Sesquicentennial Events at Rumbly Hall Today!


Head over to Rumbly Hall in downtown Brainerd for a special sesquicentennial celebration!

“Business After Hours” is taking place on Wednesday, September 22nd, from 4:30-6:30. Here’s the event’s description:

“On September 19, 1871, the City of Brainerd began its storied history with a simple business transaction – a signed plat of land that was officially recorded a few days later. As the railroad industry boomed, the city’s businesses came together to form the Brainerd Board of Trade in 1882. That organization is now called the Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce, and we’re still promoting community growth and prosperity today.

On Wednesday, September 22, the Chamber will host a special Business After Hours to celebrate the Sesquicentennial and honor 150 years of business in Brainerd! It will be a part of a week-long community celebration. The event will include a time capsule to be opened 150 years in the future!”
