Dakota City Heritage Village plans summer events


Dakota City Heritage Village is opening the doors to many of its buildings for three events this summer.

The events are called Family and Friends Fun Days, and they are meant to be a time for folks to just stop by the village and check things out.

“They’re for anybody who wants to come out and experience life in the 1900s,” said education director Alisa Peterson.
