Meeting Today Regarding Replacement of Sod Huts

The Pella Historical Museum will be meeting today to discuss the re-build and exhibition of Sod Huts that were damaged in the past by weather. Kathy Miller, Executive Director at the Museum says that they have a donor who is willing to replace the huts that were used by the original Dutch settlers as temporary homes while permanent structures could be built. Miller adds that like with anything else they replicate, historical accuracy is their main focus, as well as how it can be used as an educational tool for their visitors.
