The purpose of the Cokato Finnish American Historical Society is to preserve the history of the Finnish pioneers and others who settled in

this area of Wright County.  The society is a self supporting non profit organization.  The society holds many educational and social events during the year.

" All Aboard" 

Storyteller, Bob Gasch will trace the development of the railroad in this area during its heyday.   The most exciting thing happening in town was at the railroad station until the mid twenties when the trucks and cars began to take over the job of transporting people and goods.

Program will start at noon in Temperance Hall.
