ADA Access to the Gosen School
A project of: Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants Program
City of Winger
An Americans With Disabilities Act compliant access ramp was added to the front of the two-room Gosen School/Museum to provide access for all who want to enter. The building, built in 1888, was in operation until 1951. Sometime in the early 1990's it was moved to its present location in the city park. It serves as the museum and education center for the artifacts of the early settlers of Winger and the surrounding area. During the project the original entry door was salvaged, repaired and reinstalled instead of the proposed replica replacement. Volunteers assisted with general painting and repairs. The project has renewed area residents interest in the museum and has spurred Winger Historical & Arts Society membership growth.
